Autism Together Community allows you to share your experience in a safe, confidential and anonymous way.
Our moderation team works behind the scenes to keep your online community welcoming, safe and open. To allow you to clearly identify them, the members of the moderation team display their photo and their real name.
However, we avoid modifying or removing messages or banning members without a valid reason.

How do we intervene?
Non-compliance with rules
In the event of a repeat offence, i.e., if a member receives a third warning for not having respected the rules, we could then invite them to leave the online community.
Autism Together Community is not a crisis service.
If a message clearly presents a serious and immediate risk to life, either to the author of the message, another person or the well-being of a child, the moderators will contact the member privately and forward the deleted message by email in order to ensure immediate follow-up and provide support resources. To protect other members, we will remove the message from the forum.
In addition, if a message clearly demonstrates a risk of serious and immediate danger to life, to yourself, to another person or to the well-being of a child, the moderator must contact the emergency services. In this case, we must give your personal information – the only data Autism Together Community has about you, your email address to the emergency services.
A disturbing message is:
- A message with violent comments about yourself or others.
- A message that demonstrates a high level of psychological distress.
- A message suggesting a risk of injury, abuse or neglect to yourself or another person.
A very disturbing message is:
- A message that demonstrates a risk of serious and immediate danger to your life or that of another person, or to the well-being of a child.
