I am the mom of a 16 yr old who has Asperger's. This site has been invaluable to me, my son and our entire family. Aspergers101.com is FULL of objective information, advice, and resources to help us on a variety of topics. Too often websites are focused on one aspect of autism vs another - but this site is comprehensive and speaks to all of our needs. Even better, it is constantly being refreshed to offer the latest and greatest information. Thank you for bringing us Aspergers101.com!!

I am an Educational Diagnostician and a behavior specialist. I am also Sam's 'Uncle John'. Seeing Sam progress over the years and learning to overcome and adapt our world to his and visa-versa has and continues to amaze me. I know first hand the problems students have trying to cope in a "normal" school because I have worked with all levels of autism as well as any other designated disability for almost 40 years. Aspergers 101 provides solid information from experts in the field, parents of autistic individuals, and probably the most important source, the individual with autism. If you know a parent, individual, or a teacher who has hands on face to face interaction with individuals with autism, then this is the site you need to share with them to have a positive change in their life.

As a counselor at a school district level, I know how valuable information is when dealing with special needs students. Aspergers101 is a great resource provided for parents, educators and for those on the Autism Spectrum. Insights from the professional and medical community makes this site a stand-out, especially since new information is posted on a regular basis. This is definitely a book-mark site and I reference it often!

Being a part of the Aspergers101 team has been a learning experience! As a filmmaker, I've had the opportunity to work for Aspergers101 on numerous occasions and every time I learn more about Autism and Aspergers Syndrome. Producing interviews and storylines that help others accept and understand those with Autism is a highlight of my career. Aspergers101.org offers more than just videos and blogs, it offers a template toward a successful life living on the spectrum. Proud to be a part!

Particularly liked these articles on love and acceptance. When we received diagnosis we drove home (where our son was being cared for) wondering whether he would have grown horns or something similar. It is that whole process of expectation, and then acceptance of something quite different. Thank you for this website.

Our office houses the advisory board meetings for Aspergers101 and I've been able to learn more about Autism Awareness and Aspergers Syndrome from it's President, Jennifer Allen. Her oldest son, Sam, has Aspergers Syndrome and by getting to know him as well as her, I feel better equipped to understand any clients or potential customers that have High Functioning Autism. Aspergers101.org offers anyone the knowledge to understand these unique individuals! Bravo!

I am the mother of a 6 year old son with Aspergers and the aunt to my 16 year old nephew with Aspergers. After assessing myself, there's a high possibility I have Aspergers as well. This page has amazing information and has helped tremendously. The main misconception people have about Aspies is the lack of empathy. In my personal experience, I see an excessive amount of empathy. I don't want people to read things and think that people with Aspergers are incapable of caring or emotions because that is completely false.

Is there somewhere on this site to ask a question? I have a 27 year old son who has a good job. He has decided to quit and travel Europe on his own for 3 months. He has a hard time with directions, won't speak to strangers, won't even look us in the eye when talking. I am worried sick about this. Any suggestions or where I can post about this?

The amazing people collaborating on this site offer expertise that usually comes with a price. However this site is free to anyone needing to better themselves or their children by way of knowledge. Aspergers Syndrome can be a mystery until you understand how the brain is literately wired differently. Once you understand the results of a different yet beautiful mind your child possesses you can then direct them on an amazing journey that you are privileged enough to be a part of. Aspergers101 was created to assist mothers with such information and that makes it's contributors....priceless!
