    Heya @Darryl1854 and welcome to the community!  How're you doing today?

    You're in the right place as we have a few autistic regulars here and we're always happy to offer support, or just to chat when you need it.  If you wanted to chat I'd recommend the Coffee Lounge as that's where all the games and small talk happen. 

    I found online communities have been great for making friends, have you looked into joining any groups based on your hobbies?  So what sort of things do you like doing? :)

    Welcome from me, too @Darryl1854!

    As Albus mentioned, we have quite a few members with autism, some of whom were diagnosed in later life, so I'm sure you'll find some things in common :) 

    We also have a section for Autism and Neurodiversity that you might find interesting to read through or participate in. I hope you'll find the community friendly and helpful!
