If you have a kid or family member on the spectrum this is the best resource for education, guidance, advocacy, family and personal support and love. All of this delivered with understanding, compassion and integrity. From the top administration to the volunteers, you will encounter the best group if people around. They are a blessing!

ASSEW is a well-organized and caring group of women who have worked hard to gather volumes of useful information and resources, and made them available to parents and friends of children on the autism spectrum. With a warm, friendly, and positive atmosphere, I look forward to every visit.
