Baylor Autism Resource Clinic
Created in 2008, the Baylor Autism Resource Clinic has become an increasingly significant resource for Central Texas families dealing with Autism Spectrum Disorders and a place where Baylor students gain valuable skills and experience. Today, the clinic is part of the Baylor University Center for Developmental Disabilities, a partnership between Baylor and McLane Children's Scott & White. Each June, the clinic holds a weeklong day camp on Baylor's campus for children with autism. Individuals (ages three to 21) participate, and Baylor students serve as camp counselors. Additionally, the clinic offers valuable assessment, consultation and support group services. Your gift will help the clinic provide life-changing experiences while giving Baylor students the opportunity to grow in the knowledge and capacity for service necessary for successful careers.
Cost for one assessment $350

Reuniting Families Project
Led by Baylor anthropology faculty member Dr. Lori Baker, the Reuniting Families Project aids in the identification and repatriation of undocumented immigrants who have died while crossing the border from Mexico into the United States. Under Dr. Baker's guidance, a team of Baylor students works on cases from the border, gaining hands-on experience in exhuming remains, performing forensic DNA and skeletal analyses, identifying missing people and bringing closure to families. Your gift to the Reuniting Families Project will support the remarkable work undertaken by Dr. Baker and her dedicated students and help expand the project's scope and impact.
