Family Testimonials

"My son was diagnosed with AS del+ in 2001 when he was 7 months old. Five months later I attended my first conference in Chicago. It was the most positive and rewarding experience that I had had since his birth. The sessions are always very informative and address a wide range of topics including medical, educational, behavioral, and transitional issues. I have since attended the 2003 conference in Washington DC, 2005 in Anaheim, 2007 in St. Louis, and 2009 in Orlando. I continue to gain valuable knowledge at each conference, and the other parents whom I have met have become lifelong friends who are always so supportive and a reminder that we are not alone on this journey. I am very grateful to the ASF for bringing together the world's experts on AS and enabling families and caregivers to learn from each other with the common goal of helping our children reach their full potential."

-Ann Marie Fennelly, mother to a young boy with AS
