Hi,

I'm a 30 year old male diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. I'm looking for a restrictive community and wondering if any exist. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

What's a restrictive community?

A restrictive community is a self-sustaining community (like a Kibbutz). Marbridge is the only one in US I am aware of.

No, a self-sustaining community just for people on the spectrum.
