Description

ANSWER was started by two families who each had a son diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. They were brought together ten years ago when their sons began a social skills group together. From their experiences and hopes for the future, they felt a local organization in the West Metro of the Twin Cities was needed to address Asperger's Syndrome-Autism. ANSWER has been working to extend its scope of impact by unifying various support organizations and also by developing new programs and services to help people with Aspergers diagnoses as they age and face new challenges.
