Claire and Brian Kelley

For Claire and Brian Kelley, early diagnosis and access to treatment have been key in their journey with autism.

When their son was diagnosed three years ago, Brian and Claire enrolled in the JumpStart program. There, they learned important strategies to better communicate with their son and other techniques in their journey with autism.

“Since that time, we’ve participated in various research studies, intensive therapy, intensive home program, the Milestones program and we have a child enrolled in the Community School,” says Claire. “We also serve as volunteers on the development committee helping to support SARRC’s fundraising initiatives.”

The Kelleys also decided to join the Legacy Circle so that early diagnosis and access to treatment continue to be cornerstones of SARRC’s mission in the long term.

In addition, as Brian and Claire’s son grows and as his needs change, they see firsthand how important it is to support SARRC’s growth so individuals with autism—across the lifespan—are best supported and have access to vital programs and services.

“We support SARRC because we see firsthand how vital their services are and we believe in their mission,” says Claire.

Brian, an attorney, and Claire, a nurse practitioner, are both native Arizonans and enjoy spending time with their three children, hiking, and cooking.
