Asperger Syndrome/Autism

“Helping Aspies manage in a neurotypical world”

Asperger’s Disorder or Asperger Syndrome (AS) may have been removed from the DSM-V, but that doesn’t mean Aspergians or “Aspies” have disappeared.  Many individuals with AS identify themselves after learning about autism from the media or having a family member diagnosed.

Dr. Endlich has extensive knowledge of autism spectrum disorder, and can help:

Parents – obtain support, understanding, and resources

Siblings – develop awareness and coping skills

People on the spectrum – cope better with life’s challenges

Dr. Endlich co-leads the New to AS group at the Asperger/Autism Network.
