Aspire has offered support and information to people who have Asperger Syndrome and their families in Ireland since 1995.
Asperger Syndrome is a condition on the Autism Spectrum which impacts on the way that individuals with a diagnosis view the world, interact with others and communicate. While people who have Asperger Syndrome can have many talents and unique skills, they can experience challenges in forming relationships with others, managing anxiety, social exclusion and limited employment opportunities. Perhaps the most significant challenge is the ‘hidden’ element of the condition, which can make it difficult for others to understand the impact that Asperger Syndrome can have.
At Aspire, we believe that people who have Asperger Syndrome can do amazing things and work to increase understanding and ensure that individuals have the same access to opportunities as their peers.
