Asperger Syndrome and High
Functioning Autism Association (AHA Association) serves individuals with Autism
Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), their families, and the professionals who work
alongside them, providing crucial resources and support, throughout their
lifetime, as they face challenges, build on their strengths and fulfill their
potential. Founded in 1988 and based on Long Island, New York, with a satellite
office in NYC, AHA is directed by a dedicated volunteer executive board and an
expert professional advisory board. AHA’s services reach nearly ten thousand
people annually through one-to-one phone and e-support, more than a dozen
monthly support meetings, a highly informative weekly AHA eNewsletter, a
bi-annual print publication (On The Spectrum), bi-annual education conferences,
family recreation events, and our annual fundraiser ROCK ‘N’ BOWL for Autism.
By maintaining efficient administrative practices, 90% of every dollar donated to AHA goes directly to providing and
expanding its services.
