Aspergers Heroes. David Derbyshire
Asperger’s Heroes is a personal development service aimed at adults with Asperger’s Syndrome. Its goal is to empower people to make positive changes both in their own lives and in their workplace or community. I tackle such issues as managing stress, developing social skills and finding fulfilment, by offering one-to-one consultations and group workshops.
