Different Worlds is a group of parents, caregivers, friends and relatives with a common link. We all have personal experience of Aspergers or other Autistic Spectrum Disorders. The group was set up by parents for parents and other caregivers etc to find, and, offer some badly needed mutual support in this very challenging and often distressing area of daily life. There was no other support or help available locally that catered for Aspergers so the decision was made to start our group in December 2003.
We meet monthly and invite guest speakers along to the meetings. We have had visits from Social Services, the Local Education Authority, Alternative Therapists re: dietary advice etc. We have write ups, photos, poetry, diagnosis criteria, and much more on our Site, and we actively encourage both adults and kids to write for us.

Autism Research Centre:
Autism Research Centre is looking for adults or kids who are diagnosed with AS to take part in a new genes project, along with their brothers and sisters.
This new worldwide study involves collecting a DNA sample and a questionnaire from individuals with Aspergers and their biological brothers and sisters. Providing a DNA sample is quick, easy and a completely painless process.
