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.

2019 Autism Resource Fair

On Saturday October 26th, ASRC will host their Annual Autism Resource Fair at the Toyota Oakdale Theater Complex in Wallingford from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. This informational, one day program has served as a major event to benefit the Autism community for over 20 years.

The fair has really grown over the years, usually attracting over 600 attendees and 110 different vendors. Exhibitors come from Connecticut, Upstate New York, Pennsylvania, and even as far as Canada. Attendees receive information on a wide range of topics for those living with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Six workshops are held throughout the day, which covered topics like financial planning, fostering independent life skills, improving communications, and problem solving.

Disability Rights Connecticut is looking to speak with individuals with I/DD who are seeking affordable housing in Fairfield County that meets their needs. This includes people currently living in market-rate rentals (subsidized by family members or others), in their family homes, or in congregate settings because they are unable to secure alternative affordable housing that meets their needs. We would like to speak with individuals in this situation who would be interested in living anywhere in Fairfield County (regardless of which county they currently reside in). If you or someone you know or work with meets this criteria, please contact Catherine Cushman at Disability Rights Connecticut.

ASRC’s vision is two-fold: to prepare those with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) for the world, as we prepare the world for those with ASD.
