Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) today announced it will host a Spring Carnival on Saturday, June 6, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at its new treatment center located at 5300 Lennox Ave., Suite 100, Bakersfield, Calif. 93309. CARD provides a variety of services worldwide using the evidence-based principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) to treat the delays and challenges commonly associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ABA is the only scientifically validated treatment for ASD, and research shows that it is most effective when delivered early and at a high level of intensity. The free community event will give families an opportunity to learn more about ABA, meet the staff, tour the facility, and enjoy child-friendly carnival games and activities. Childcare will be provided and refreshments will be served. To RSVP, contact s.price(at)centerforautism(dot)com.

“Our mission is to ensure that every individual diagnosed with autism has access to top quality treatment to reach his or her fullest potential,” said Ashley Langeliers, regional clinical manager at CARD. ”With that in mind, we invite the community to join us for a fun-filled and informational day.”

CARD services include center-based treatment, home-based services and supervision, integrated services for adults, parent training, and school shadowing. Clients receive CARD’s cutting-edge curriculum while receiving care from top-quality ABA therapists and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) supervisors.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in every 68 children in America is diagnosed with ASD, with one in 42 boys and one in 189 girls diagnosed. This is more than a 30 percent increase since the 2008 report. As the prevalence of ASD has increased, services for children with ASD have not always kept pace with demand. As a result, families affected by ASD may encounter challenges when trying to access quality treatment. The increase in autism diagnoses and the lack of resources available to families in many communities leave parents struggling to access the services that are crucial to their child’s development.
