ANSWER/Aspergers Network Support for Well-being, Education & Research is a 501c3 that was established in 2004 by 2 mothers whose sons were diagnosed with aspergers. We are located in the western suburb of the Twin Cities in Minnesota.
ANSWER is committed to working on ways to bridge the gaps in the current services for this ASD/Aspergers population. One of which is by offering transitional support with the help of Dr. Jed Baker & the Preparing for Life curriculum. We have a collaborative relationship with Friendship Ventures camps & provide parent support through group meetings one time a month. There is a housing initiative we have been carefully constructing & fore see being something we undertake in the near future. It is also our mission to help families from diagnosis to independent living find, fund & secure the services they need. Our website is currently being worked on as we mentioned but you can still access it at : www.aspergersmn.org. Also we have a new page on FB at: https://www.facebook.com/
