Clinical Director

Jay Kirsch


Jay Kirsch, after retiring from a rewarding career teaching High School English in 2008, could not shake off his desire to continue making a significant impact on young lives. His teaching years, touched by the experiences of individuals with disabilities in his general education classes, propelled him towards a new direction. This led to his becoming a BCBA in 2014, driven by his commitment to support those very individuals. Building upon his extensive experience working with teenagers, Jay took on the challenge of coordinating the launch of the first BlueSprig Adolescent Center in the Houston area in July 2020, situated at the Woodlands Center. This center prides itself on celebrating and supporting individuals with autism aged 2 to 26, an initiative close to Jay’s heart. His mission extends beyond just coordination; he is deeply passionate about ensuring the center offers a welcoming, safe, and enriching environment where every client feels a strong sense of belonging, irrespective of their age. Outside of his professional endeavors, Jay extends his commitment to inclusivity and support by facilitating a social group for adults with intellectual disabilities at his church, underscoring his unwavering dedication to enhancing the lives of individuals with disabilities in every facet of his life.
