The Swim Team discussion guide includes information on the autism spectrum, autism in New Jersey, "Falling Off the Cliff", services and programs for adults with autism and the Special Olympics, as well as prompts for discussion and a list of action steps and resources. This guide is an invitation to dialogue. It is based on a belief in the power of human connection, designed for people who want to use Swim Team to engage family, friends, classmates, colleagues and communities. In contrast to initiatives that foster debates in which participants try to convince others that they are right, this document envisions conversations undertaken in a spirit of openness in which people try to understand one another and expand their thinking by sharing viewpoints and listening actively.
