(Our Unique Purpose, our Brand promise)
We promise to empower and educate individuals with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger’s, their advocates and the community so that we can provide optimum support and expanding opportunities for lifelong growth and fulfillment.
Our Core Values:
Integrity: Utilizing the quality or state of being of sound moral principle, uprightness, honesty and sincerity while carrying out our mission.
Compassion/Empathy : Feeling concern while understanding the challenges of those diagnosed with High-Functioning Autism/Asperger and their support system then acting upon that understanding.
Dedication: The act of binding ourselves (intellectually and emotionally) to a course of action of assisting or towards making a difference in our community
Knowledge: A continual effort of seeking and learning new information and insights on Autism and Aspergers
This will be accomplished through our Four Buckets:
1. Awareness 2. Tools 3. Community Initiatives/Policy Changes 4. Growth and Sustainability
The Aspergers101 Mission, Core Values and Buckets of Action were inspired through the many years of experience raising our son Sam on the autism spectrum. It was, however, the team of professionals, doctors, therapists, educators, caring individuals and those on the spectrum that dedicated their time and energies at a full day Strategic Planning Session by which these principles came clearly into focus. Aspergers101 will strive to uphold and deliver support through information toward fulfilling lifelong growth potential for those living with High Functioning Autism or Aspergers.
