Asperger Help Desk was created by a young adult with Asperger Syndrome. This is a New Jersey based web site providing information, messageboard, and links to resources including local support groups for young adults and parents.

AWARES Conference Center - Autism 2006 gives you free and direct access to over 60 autism experts from around the World.

LISTSERV FOR TEEN AND PRETEEN GIRLS WITH ASPERGERS can be accessed by sending e-mail to Asd_girls@yahoogroups.com. Another site for girls and women with ASD is autism_in_girls@yahoogroups.com .

O.A.S.I.S. is a parent support group. As parents of children who are diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, they understand how essential it is that families of children diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome and related disorders, educators who teach children with Asperger Syndrome, professionals working with individuals diagnosed with AS, and individuals with AS who are seeking support, have access to information. Although recently reminded that there is no oasis or paradise for those with Asperger Syndrome, they sincerely hope that children with Asperger Syndrome along with parents and professionals, will find a bit of shade and support via the information presented and links available at this site. The University of Delaware has donated the space for this website. OASIS sponsors two message board and chatroom support forums. Both are private and moderated and are located on delphiforums.com. In order to participate you must register with them and you will need a one-time "Group Registration Code".
