US Autism & Asperger Association wishes you a Happy Holiday season and a New Year filled with opportunities.

larry kaplanDear Supporters of USAAA:

The holiday season is about spending time with family, thinking about others, and reflecting back on this year and looking forward to the new year. USAAA has worked continuously to Provide the Opportunity for individuals with ASD to achieve their fullest potential.

We reflect on the year 2012 to review what we accomplished as an organization and to learn how we can improve, in order to continue to bring solutions and promise for everyone next year.

As I look back over the last eighteen years, it is clear to me that it takes a whole group of dedicated individuals that include a Board of Directors, Advisory Board members, volunteers, sponsors, conference speakers, exhibitors, members, researchers, web designers and many more people to develop and strengthen an organization. The triumphs we have had this past year have been the result of inspiration and taking chances. All in all, there were hundreds of individuals who contributed their efforts to help support the USAAA mission. THANK YOU for your support.

May your new year be filled with happiness and an abundance of opportunities!


Lawrence P. Kaplan, PhD
USAAA CEO and Founder
