New Name, Same Mission - AANE is Now the Asperger/Autism Network

From AANE
The Asperger/Autism Network

New Name, Same Mission!

Dear AANE Members and Friends,

The Asperger's Association of New England is changing its name to the Asperger/Autism Network.

While we are keeping the AANE acronym, we are evolving to meet changes in the diagnostic environment and to acknowledge our expansive reach beyond New England. We will continue to serve our community, including individuals with Asperger Syndrome and similar Autism Spectrum profiles.

The new name will ensure that people who need AANE's services and support will be able to find the organization - regardless of where they live or what diagnosis they receive under the new DSM-5 guidelines.

To complement our name change, AANE has created a new look to position the organization for the future. You will notice many of these exciting changes in the coming months.

Though our name has transitioned, our commitment to our mission remains the same: We will work with individuals, families, and professionals to empower people with Asperger Syndrome and similar Autism Spectrum profiles to build meaningful connected lives.

We do this by providing information, education, community, support, and advocacy, all in an atmosphere of validation and respect.

We are excited about our new look and how it supports our position as worldwide leaders for the Asperger/Autism community. Everyone at AANE looks forward to working with you.

Thank you.

Dania Jekel

Executive Director
