About Us…

Asperger Manitoba Inc. (AMI) grew out of a support group for parents of adults with Asperger Syndrome who recognized the need for increased awareness, understanding and ongoing supports, specific to the needs of adults with Asperger Syndrome living and working successfully within the community. Later, AMI expanded its mandate to include children with Asperger Syndrome and their families in its mandate.Current activities include a facilitated Peer Support Group for adults with Asperger Syndrome and an informal support group for parents of adults with this diagnosis.  AMI also provides limited direct support to individuals and their families as well as information sessions to organizations and groups supporting them.

AMI’s purpose:

  1. To provide support for those affected by Asperger’s Syndrome by offering education and counselling.
  2. To educate the public about Asperger’s Syndrome and the needs of persons affected by Asperger’s Syndrome by collecting and disseminating information on the topic.
  3. To undertake activities which are ancillary and incidental to these objects.

AMI is excited to announce the “Pathways to Employment Project!”

Recently, AMI was awarded a generous grant from Autism Speaks Canada to conduct a project that will bring youth with ASD and their families together to plan for the transition to adulthood (Launch into Life!),  This can be followed by participation in the Building Independence pre-employment prep program or the Start Strong post-secondary prep workshop series.  Maybe your son or daughter already has plans related to post-secondary education or employment – either of these great programs would be of use to them.  Check out our new Pathways to Employment page to learn more and apply for any of the three programs.
