INTRODUCING WaASP

Welcome to WaASP!

WaASP is a group of Worcestershire parents who have adult sons and daughters with Asperger's Syndrome. Our aim is to lobby for the effective provision of appropriate services for adults with Asperger's.

Because Asperger Syndrome is neither a physical, psychiatric nor a learning disability, it often fails to trigger support systems and benefits.

Worcestershire Health and Social Service Authorities do not currently offer a specialised service for adults with Asperger's. A planned and managed approach to Asperger's can reduce the cost to society, which currently faces the cost of ignoring the condition.

Carers – most frequently, parents – grow older and environmental factors change. Less than 10% of AS sufferers obtain lasting employment: and their position can deteriorate. Appropriate help and understanding give real benefits to society, as an interesting and unusual individual is supported and allowed to make his or her special contribution.

WaASP aims to encourage Worcestershire authorities, to provide appropriate services.

Membership is open to everyone in Worcestershire who has adult offspring with Asperger's.

How you can help us:

N.I.C.E (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) is an independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance on promoting good health and preventing and treating ill health. They're asking for suggestions from the public for what the public believe they should be providing guidance on. Why don't you let them know that you believe they should do more for Aspergers Syndrome? Tell them here:
