Welcome to Asperger Manitoba!

Are you ready to “Launch into Life?”

Transition to adulthood is a multifaceted process involving many different systems.  It is important to plan in a thoughtful manner to get the most out of what exists and determine what pieces need to be put in place to cover those areas not covered by our current support systems.  Launch into Life can help.  Stay tuned for opportunities to take part in this workshop series.  In the meantime, view or download the Prepare to Launch resource manual used in the Launch into Life workshops here: LAUNCH GUIDE 3.3 20190313 

About Us…

Asperger Manitoba Inc.

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.
