ASRC Receives Official Non-Profit Status

The letter from the IRS finally came, and the Autism Spectrum Resource Center is now an official 501(c) 3 non-profit, tax free agency. We are very proud of this achievement, and look forward to continuing to serve those on the autism spectrum and their families. A big thank you to Bill Butler for filing all of the paperwork, and working diligently with all the officials to ensure this goal. Congratulations ASRC, -Board Members, Staff and our amazing Volunteers!

ASRC would like to welcome Robin Blue to the Board of Directors. Robin's experience with the local autism population as well as running her own business will greatly benefit ASRC and our mission.

Robin is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and a Board Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC). She also holds a Texas Educator Certificate in Special Education (EC-12). In addition to her extensive training and continuing education concentration in autism spectrum disorders and Applied Behavior Analysis, she has advanced training in Biomedical Music Therapy Applications from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire and advanced training in standardized therapeutic applications of Neurologic Music Therapy from the Robert F. Unkefer Academy of Neurologic Music Therapy, Colorado State University.

With over 12 years experience working with children on the autism spectrum as well as children through adults with developmental disabilities, Robin opened Therapy Connections of South Texas in August of 2008. Therapy Connections continues to grow, providing services all over the Coastal Bend area through ECI and local school systems as well as clinic based direct services provided at the Therapy Connections clinic.

We look forward to working with Robin, and we hope you will join us in making her feel welcome.
