Social Network for Autism Community Launched

Temecula, CA, February 02, 2011 --(PR.com)-- A California-based autism/asperger syndrome advocacy group, has launched a new website, www.AutismSocialNet.com, a social networking site created specifically for the autism community.

The site is designed to function very much like the most well known social networking sites, which reduces the learning curve and provides a comfort level for its members. Users can post status updates, make their own groups, add photo albums and YouTube videos, create and register for events – a familiar process to anyone who has ever used a social network.

Individuals who are on the autism spectrum characteristically have social deficits, but are frequently computer savvy. This provides a safe place for anyone on the spectrum, parents, caregivers, relatives or friends of people with autism, professionals in the field, and even neurotypicals who want to learn more about autism.

Current statistics provided by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention show that an average of 1 in 110 children in the United States have an autism spectrum disorder.

Additional information can be found at www.AutismSocialNet.com.
