At the Resource Fair

Finding access to the resources and services a family might need to support the development and growth of their child with Autism Sprectrum Disorder can be daunting . . . Let us take the hard work out of making those connections! 

At this year's Resource Fair, you will be able to connect with companies and organizations that can provide you with family fun activities, insurance companies, financial planners, housing opportunities as well as employers who are doing amazing things in the workplace by providing an inclusive work environment for the neurodiverse community. 

Your Support Makes a Difference!

Your support is vital and with your help we can provide more access to care and resources in the communities we live and play in!

As of 2020, about 1 in 36 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network.

ASRC at Clifford Beers vision is to prepare those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for the world, as we prepare the world for those with ASD.  It is a daily challenge, but with your help, we can make meaningful progress.

ASRC @ Clifford Beers provides services, supports and resources to families and individuals navigating the autism landscape, and educates academic, medical and therapeutic professionals and community providers who work with them. 

At the Resource Fair you will have the opportunity to find family friendly recreational activities, connections to inclusive employers, social groups, training, advocacy and events for all ages, as well as responding to hundreds of families who are new to the diagnosis or who need guidance navigating transition and adult issues.  

Why Participate?

For over twenty five years ASRC has been helping people with autism spectrum and neurodiverse profiles build meaningful connected lives. 

We provide individuals, families, and professionals with information, education, community, support, and the advocacy they need every day.
