New Sign Independent Living on the Autistic Spectrum, or InLv for short, is an online support group for people with Autism or related conditions, including but not limited to Asperger Syndrome. They come together here to make friends, support each other, and share practical experiences and tips relevant to independent living with their condition. Members live all over the world. The communication medium is e-mail; essentially, the group is a set of mailing lists divided by topic. The group is open to people on the autistic spectrum (either officially or self-diagnosed). The group is also open to family and friends of autistic people, provided that they are interested in autistic people as persons and friends, rather than research subjects or solely sources of information. This website is brought from the Netherlands and offers information in English, Netherlands and Swedish.
