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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My friend Dawn and I are very, very grateful to have found ASSEW and the support group that meets monthly. We had very few resources and little direction until now. It has helped to meet with other parents who are and who have experienced the same things, who can provide encouragement and much advice. ASSEW has also informed us of workshops and seminars of great help and hope.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep a support group meeting year-round, if possible. Continue the wonderful work!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The well-organized facility and the warmness of the staff, as well as the acceptance we have felt.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Cheerful, friendly, and very knowledgable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide child care for parents who would otherwise be unable to attend support groups, seminars, or who simply need respite; a larger facility, perhaps with a play area.

Ways to make it better...

If there were child care available at the facility, however, this requires a great deal of responsibility and possibly liability.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Parents who want to attend support groups and seminars are challenged with finding quality child care during those times, especially parents of children with the most severe symptoms of autism.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I hope that ASSEW continues to thrive, especially as the cases of autism rise.
