Facility Tour Checklist

Use the tour checklist when taking a tour of a day program and long-term care facilities to help with questions to ask and things to look for.

ASF Family Champions with Adults


The ASF Family Champions are family members who have volunteered to be available to other families to share their knowledge, experience and lend an ear.  There is a group of Champions who are parents to adults with AS. These families are a great resource for questions, concerns and advice on various aspects of adults with AS transitioning and thriving. 

See the list on the ASF Family Champions page and reach out to one today.
