ChatAutism, founded by Amy and Gareth Nelson of Aspies For Freedom in the early 2000s, was the first dedicated IRC network for those on the Autism Spectrum, with AutIRC following in 2007, which was itself a former IRC server from ChatAutism.

Despite the fact more dedicated networks are popping up, ChatAutism still remains the largest IRC network for those on the Autism spectrum
