Families of Adults Affected
by Asperger's Syndrome
Our mission is to offer support to the family members of adult individuals with Asperger's Syndrome. Our goal is to educate the public to the existence of Asperger's Syndrome in the ADULT population and to bring awareness of this neurological disorder and its ramifications on the "whole" family to the medical communities who are directly or indirectly involved. Another key aspect to our work is to give the families a measure of reassurance so they can validate their concerns and frustrations as concrete issues rather than simple "family problems".
The goals of FAAAS are as follows:
To validate and support family members who do not have Asperger's Syndrome, but whose lives are are affected by this disorder.
To supply information and insight to the medical, psychological, and neurological communities regarding the families of individuals with Asperger's Syndrome, and how this neurolological-biological-developmental disorder has impacted their lives.
