AANE is thrilled to partner with Dr. Jane Thierfeld Brown to offer college consultations for your teen and family. Students with Asperger Profiles often have unique needs for support in areas that colleges are not mandated to provide. In-depth understanding of a student’s strengths and challenges and an institution’s ability to support them is essential in facilitating a successful experience.
