Meet Ian and Nasha
Ian was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at the age of 11. He is now a computer-savvy 27-year-old who works in finance and spends much of his free time designing robots which he enters into competitions. Ian has taught Nasha many things, from complex card games to the intricacies of robotics.
"Very often, he will sit by my side and coach me," Nasha says.
Ian's Grandmother, Nasha, has always played an active role in his life. Whether through theater, movies, storytelling, or sharing interests, Nasha loves spending time with all of her grandchildren. Throughout Ian's life, Nasha has delighted in his passions, encouraged his creativity, and rejoiced in his achievements.
"She is patient," Ian says. "She is always cheering me on."
Through it all, AANE was there for support.
“Only a life lived for others is the life worthwhile.”
