The Asperger/Autism Network (AANE) video starts with an image of the AANE logo and the tagline:
"AANE

The next slide moves to the text of AANE's mission statement:
"For over 20 years AANE has worked with individuals, families, and professionals to help people with Asperger's and similar autism spectrum profiles build meaningful, connected lives."

The rest of the video consists of testimonials from our community members on what they have gained from the programming and services that AANE provides.
