We are a small non-profit with grassroots beginnings. We are hoping to update many of our policies and procedures.
The Asperger/Autism Network (AANE) helps people with Asperger's or similar autism spectrum and neurodiverse profiles build meaningful, connected lives. We provide individuals, families, and professionals with information, education, community, support, and advocacy -- all in an inclusive atmosphere of validation and respect.
Our primary mission is to assist individuals with an Asperger/autism profile. AANE is also an inclusive community that also serves people who have other neurological differences or who feel our services would be helpful. You do not need to have received a professional Asperger/autism diagnosis to make use of AANE's services.
In addition to the services we provide from our home bases in Massachusetts and New York, AANE works in close partnership with other Asperger and autism organizations throughout the world, as well as disability organizations that offer services relevant to the autism population.
