Everyone Deserves to Live Their Best Life Possible

ASRC’s philosophy 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.

A key player in creating the pilot program for adult services within the Department of Developmental Services, ASRC has also served as a participating stakeholder in several governmental committees, including the State Department of Education, the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services, the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, and the Department of Public Health.

ASRC is leading the way in advocating at the state level for family and adult services, and continues to be the “go-to” resource for lawmakers in Hartford, Connecticut to help shape legislation regarding Connecticut’s response to autism.
