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.
