DANISH Meetings are postponed while Dr. Mandell continues to recover from a critical illness. We will update this website and our Facebook group when we resume.

Dallas Asperger Network for Information Support and Help

DANISH is an organization serving those with high functioning autism, Asperger's, and related developmental disorders. We also serve families and friends of those individuals mentioned above as well as anyone interested in learning more about these disorders.

The structure of DANISH consists primarily of two areas. One is an online support group and the other is an in-person support group that meets the fourth Thursday of every month (except in November and December). The online support group involves DANISH members chatting with each other, sharing information, and giving opinions as they respond to one another's questions and concerns. The in-person support group does essentially the same thing, however they are engaging each other in person and Dr. Bob Mandell is present to facilitate the meeting and provide his experience. You may participated in both the online and in-person groups free of charge. It is estimated that there are over 350 families involoved in the Dallas Asperger Network for Information, Support, and Help.
