James W. Loomis, PhD, honored with the 2013 Community Professional Award by ASRC and the Southern Connecticut State University Autism Center of Excellence
At their Annual Conference in April, Dr. James Loomis was recognized for his extensive work and commitment to those with autism and their families and honored with the 2013 Community Professional Award. Dr. Loomis has been at the forefront of providing services to children, adolescents, and adults with autism spectrum disorders in Connecticut for over 25 years. In addition to his leadership role at the Center for Children with Special Needs, Dr. Loomis provides consultation, evaluation, and outpatient services to families, schools, and agencies throughout the region. He has collaborated extensively with the Department of Developmental Services in the development of the Autism Pilot Project, and has also worked closely with the Bureau of Rehabilitative Services with the goal of providing more comprehensive vocational and community-based opportunities for adults with ASD. The autism community in Connecticut is indeed fortunate to count him as one of our own, and we at the Center for Children with Special Needs are grateful for his leadership, mentorship, and scholarship. Please join me in congratulating Dr. Loomis on the occasion of his well-deserved award.
