Aims and Objectives
Aspergers Victoria (formerly ASSN Vic) is a not for profit charity organisation established in 1991 by a group of parents of those with Asperger Syndrome. We seek to provide support, a forum for discussion and education for those caring for, or living with Asperger Syndrome within Victoria.
