Our Philosophy & Values
The AE Philosophy sometimes seems counter to what the mainstream conversation about Autism & Asperger's says, so we've outlined it below. Read through our website to get more ideas on how we think and see life on the spectrum.
- People on the spectrum are just that, people. There isn't anything wrong with them and there's nothing to be fixed.
- People do the best they can with the emotional capacity they have. If they are struggling, thats because they are missing the emotional capacity to do better.
- It's almost impossible to tell you specifically what to do, because that depends on your context & resources
Above all else, we value treating people on the spectrum with a non-monocultural world view that says that there is nothing inherently wrong with them or the way they live their life.
