Aspies Together. The Future of Autism Support in Second Life




What is Autism?

Autism is a spectrum condition meaning no two people diagnosed with it are the same as you can have elements from all over the spectrum. Autism is mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by great difficulty in communicating, forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.

Asperger syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) considered to be on the “high functioning” end of the spectrum. Affected children and adults have difficulty with social interactions and exhibit a restricted range of interests and/or repetitive behaviors.


Why does Second life help people with Autism?

Second Life removes so many of the obstacles of social interaction which get in the way in the real world. It gives people with autism the ability to express themselves as they wish, which may not be possible in the real world due to people’s reactions to this condition.

 It is unfortunate that the real world can be very harsh and critical of people on the spectrum due the fact that anyone with autism doesn't fit neatly into the box that society considers "normal".  My name is Sam Firehawk and  I am fully aware of the terms of service for Second Life and will never allow any member of the Aspies Together Group to break any rules while at the same time allowing our members to express themselves as they wish within those guidelines.

Here is a little background on me, I have been in Second Life since 2008 and I have suspected that I had a form of autism for a long time but only recently got diagnosed. I have a background as a DJ and also enjoy building things in this virtual world.

When I was officially diagnosed a year ago I began looking more closely at the autism groups in SL and couldn’t help but be disappointed with how inactive these groups were. It got me thinking.  What if we started a peer to peer support and social group? This is when Aspies Together was born. It started out as a group but we were very fortunate to get a kind land donation which is our current home. The club house is on two levels.  Downstairs is the club for live DJ events and upstairs is the quiet meeting area for our group sessions. We are open to the public to help bring awareness to Autism and inspiring others to spread awareness and provide support.

Our future goals are to offer free affordable housing and rentals for people on the Autism spectrum because we believe having their own space to call home is both therapeutic and important. We would also love to offer tuition for DJing to help with skill development and confidence building as well as extend out services and tuition for builders with Autism by providing free space to advertise and a place to sell goods our members create. Working Together we can make a difference!

Join Aspies Together Today!  Here is our Event Schedule

Mondays:  8am - 10am - Live DJ Sam Firehawk

Thursdays:   12pm - 1pm - Group session lead by Sam Firehawk with a different theme each week

Sundays:  12pm - 2pm Live DJ Yvette

Amazing Graces in Second Life: For a Better Real Life – Glossom Resident reporting…




We could mention many success cases of residents who have become real millionaires thanks to Second life. Or even of successful virtual relationships which changed the lives of real people in a very positive way. However, today we will go further and we will be addressing amazing uses of Second Life that have great impact in Real Life.

This virtual platform is very effective when it comes to creating campaigns to help people plagued by natural disasters or to raising funds for the underprivileged to ensure their basic needs. In this global platform it becomes easier to reach new targets and appeal to the hearts of residents and involve them in noble causes. Either as an act of altruism or selfishness, the truth is that the volunteer also benefits from a fantastic feeling that he/she is doing a good deed.
