Aspergers and Driving – Help us Transform the DPS System!

It's #GivingTuesday...Take Part!

 

Aspergers101 is helping to safely put those with Autism/Aspergers behind the wheel!

Working with the Texas DPS, Dr. Temple Grandin, and our State Legislature (R-Lyle Larson), Aspergers101 has begun a 2-year initiative titled: “Driving Safely with Autism/Aspergers Syndrome”. This project involves marketing the new Texas drivers license restriction code: Communication Impediment with a Peace Officer, and implementing changes that will enhance communication/understanding between the law and a person with Autism/Asperger Syndrome or other communication impediments. Poster

Started by the mom of a son with Aspergers Syndrome, Aspergers101.org is a 501c3 non-profit that was recently awarded the #2 slot on The Top Ten Worldwide Websites List on the topic of Autism/Aspergers Syndrome!
Thank you for your consideration of supporting this ground-breaking endeavor. Texas would lead the country with the implementation of such a program. You will soon see a section on the Aspergers101 website offering updated information on the status of the two-year project which includes posters (pictured), tri-fold brochures (both in Spanish and English), training video modules and Texas DPS amendments during the January 2017 Legislative Session.
