Welcome to Verge of Independence Project (VIP), a progressive change initiative that uses multimedia to promote the independence, self-advocacy, and social confidence of autistic young adults!
"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 in discovering that connections matter. You, too, can make the
discovery by exploring this resourceful site.

Happy New Year, VIPers!
We've just relaunched our blog with its new name -
"Don't Cut Corners...Unless It's Cake" (formerly
The Clique/Click Blog). Each month you can look
forward to receiving a sweet slice
of wisdom that speaks to autistic adults and
to those who support them. The first blog
addresses how autistic people can develop a network of
friends and solidify support teams .
Feel free to check out past blogs that can be accessed from this page.
