2018 Annual Appeal

Living with Asperger’s can feel lonely.

Born in Venezuela, Artie was adopted as a baby by a bilingual family. Despite growing up speaking Spanish and English, he struggled to communicate his needs and emotions. At age 12, he was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. But diagnosis alone could not ease his frustration and stress.

At AANE, we understand.

Then Artie’s mom found AANE. She met professionals and parents who understood her and supported her son’s challenges and strengths. The insight she gained enabled her entire family to understand Artie better, and to find the right environments for him. He made friends, learned to manage stress, and discovered his voice.

Sometimes you just need someone in your corner who speaks your language.

In order to continue this vital work, AANE needs you in our corner.
