Asmi was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder when she was 12-18 months old. She is non-verbal and can only communicate with her body language. Asmi was the inspiration behind the creation of the website MeAsmi. Through the website, families of neurodivergent people are connected to professionals and therapists. Currently, 50 families and 4 hospitals have benefitted from the service. The creators of MeAsmi hope to help more young people learn about neurodivergent disorders, using Asmi as the inspiration behind the project.
