For more than 20 years, ASRC has held to the ideal that everyone deserves to live their best life possible. This belief continues as ASRC joined Clifford Beers on July 1, 2023. The mission remains as ASRC @ Clifford Beers strives: to provide lifelong access to opportunities for persons on the autism spectrum with the goal of being fully-included and participating members of their communities.
ASRC @ Clifford Beers maintains the vision: to prepare those with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) for the world, as we prepare the world for those with ASD.
ASRC @ Clifford Beers will continue to advocate for family and adult services, and to be a voice to help expand on services now in place.
As a key player in creating the pilot program for adult services, the Division of Autism, and the Waiver for adults with ASD, all located within the Department of Developmental Services, this organization will continue to serve as a participating stakeholder on committees and councils, including the Advisory Council for the Autism Division currently located at The Department of Social Services.
ASRC @ Clifford Beers maintains a philosophy that is driven by the understanding that ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) presents itself differently in different people, therefore no single intervention is helpful for all individuals on the autism spectrum. Families need to make decisions based on good information (education) in conjunction with what they already understand about their child/teen/adult.
