The Autism Clinic, a project of the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University, was opened in the summer of 2010. Dr. Jennifer Ganz from Texas A&M University (TAMU) and Cheryl Allen (CEO of Easter Seals East Texas) worked together to open the clinic. The Dansbury Grant was awarded to remodel the BVRC facility and change the medical records and administrative offices into a working clinic. The clinic ran under the leadership of Dr. Jennifer Ganz, BCBA-D and Dr. Mandy Rispoli, BCBA-D, for the first two years of operation.In May of 2012 Dr. Amy Heath, BCBA-D was hired to take over the director position and find ways to expand services to more children. The clinic now serves individuals of all ages and offers both group and private ABA therapy.
