ASPIE is a parent and professional support group serving the Greater Houston area that was created to provide information sharing and support to the many families and professionals who live and work with individuals with Asperger's Syndrome.
Our goal is to foster awareness and understanding of this unique condition and to support, assist and help educate the many people who are connected in some way to AS. We hope to serve as a first-line resource for anyone needing up-to-date and accurate information on Asperger's Syndrome and the many issues that surround it.
At each monthly ASPIE meeting, speakers share information on a variety of Asperger's-related topics. In addition, time is devoted to questions and answers and networking with other parents and professionals. (See Schedule page for future speakers/topics)
ASPIE "Parent Partners" - veteran AS parents - are available at each meeting and by phone to speak with anyone who might have AS-related questions specific to their child or situation. ASPIE also provides a "Parent Packet" to members containing valuable Asperger's-related resources for the Houston area.
ASPIE is currently in the process of putting together an Advisory Board of local and national AS experts to advise and consult with the group on an ongoing basis. In the future, ASPIE hopes to organize and host a conference on Asperger's Syndrome which will include some of the leading experts in the field and become an annual Houston event.
We invite parents, family-members, friends, teachers, school-based therapists, private practitioners, physicians and anyone else who might impact the life of an individual with Asperger's Syndrome to attend our monthly meetings and become a member of ASPIE.
