Welcome to Verge of Independence Project (VIP), a multimedia progressive change initiative, promoting the independence and social confidence of young adults on the autism spectrum!
"Did you know that nearly 800,000 young adults in the U.S. are affected by autism?" Learn more about autism and resources on our About Autism page.
VIP aims to help autistic young adults to discover that connections matter. You, too, can make the discovery by exploring this resourceful site.
Once entering the zone, you’ll be able to focus on empowering platforms that lead to gaining independence.
We want to keep you charged up by presenting encouraging web and podcast interviews! Take a listen to our kick-off interview with Kevin Carroll, bestselling author of "Rules of the Red Rubber Ball!"

Starting in 2020, each month, our new blog -
"Don't Cut Corners...Unless It's Cake" (formerly
The Click/Clique Blog) will offer a sweet slice
of wisdom that speaks to autistic adults and
to those who support them. The first blog will
address developing a network of friends and
solidifying support teams.
