ASAN-Sacramento (Part of Autistic Self Advocacy Network National)

ASAN Sacramento is part of ASAN National- countrywide network of chapters that focus on training self-advocacy and empowerment of autistic adults.  National organization is headed by Ari Ne'eman, first autistic man serving on National Council for Disabilities.

This chapter is a strong proponent of inclusion of all people and is steeped in a philosophy of Neurodiversity.

Neurodiversity proposes that human mind  has many different expressions and abilities; autistic individuals are not ill or "damaged" but rather show another set of possibilites that are inherent in human development.  The philosophy focuses on integration rather than cure of Autistics.
