ASSEW has been with us since my autistic son was 3 with many challenges. He is now a happy, friendly, 14 year old and I have to say, we would be struggling without the resources at ASSEW. The staff is some of the NICEST people you could ever meet. All of them have lots of experience in the autism world.
For ANY parents just getting that diagnosis for their child OR adults on the spectrum, run (don't walk!) to the ASSEW office. They can help!

When my son was diagnosed 18 years ago at age 2, my first outreach was to ASSEW. The information chain, extensive library, support, advocacy and networking groups empowered me to help my son and family in ways that would have otherwise been overwhelming. This organization and staff do not get enough thank you's for all they have done to spread the word to the greater Milwaukee area's families and professionals. I have and will continue to do all I can to help this wonderful organization reach out to the 9 counties it serves.
