AHA Association

Their first meeting was in the spring of 1988 under the auspices of the Department of Child Psychiatry at Stony Brook and the direction of John C. Pomeroy, M.D., to whom they are most grateful. Dr. Pomeroy, at that time the Director of Child Psychiatry, O.P.D., University Hospital at Stony Brook, was doing research on high-functioning autistic-like children. As his study progressed, it became apparent to him that a number of families were in need of a support group where parents could share experiences, develop and learn about potential resources and discuss management of their children’s problems.

Mission:

  • To increase awareness and knowledge of higher functioning autism among the professionals who diagnose, treat, educate or provide services. (Autism is a spectrum disorder that varies in degree from mild to severe with a wide range of needs).
  • To attain appropriate educational programs, effective social skills training, increased social and recreational opportunities, meaningful employment, and sufficient and satisfactory independent living accommodations for those with High Functioning Autism (HFA).
  • To develop a strong network of parents supporting one another through the challenges of daily life.
  • To provide parents and professionals with a useful forum where they can exchange pertinent information.

Their goals are:

  • To increase awareness and knowledge of ASD among the professionals who diagnose, treat, educate or provide services.
