Have you come to believe you or someone you love might have Asperger's syndrome / be on the autism spectrum, or has there been a recent diagnisis? Have you felt daunted by the prospect of wading through the results turned up by a search engine on the matter? Could you use a little help sorting it all out? You've come to the right place!
The Asperger's / Autism Toolbox organizes this information for you by providing listings of different resources, organized by category, so you can easily find the information and support that's right for you.
