Santa Fe Springs, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2016
Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) today announced the upcoming opening of its new treatment center at 12215 Telegraph Road, Suite 111, Santa Fe Springs, CA. The center will officially open for business on Monday, April 18. Recognized as a global leader in the field of autism treatment, CARD specializes in using applied behavior analysis (ABA) to treat individuals of all ages diagnosed 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 Santa Fe Springs office joins more than 10 other locations servicing the Greater Los Angeles area and is the first in the eastern Los Angeles County region. CARD offers center-based services, home-based services, school-based services, vocational services, diagnostic and assessment services, and social skills groups for individuals of all ages with ASD. CARD creates individualized treatment plans for each patient tailored to his or her specific needs.
“I am ecstatic for the Santa Fe Springs office to be opening! We hope the local community will view us as a resource and source of support," said CARD operations manager, Kim Tran. "We are looking forward to being able to provide services to more and more families.”
In addition to CARD's renowned autism treatment services, the Santa Fe Springs location is also planning a series of sports classes every Tuesday afternoon, starting on April 19 and running through May 24. The historic Heritage Park, located across the street from the new center, will serve as the backdrop for sports classes.
The Chula Vista center is one of over 60 centers that provides services based on the CARD Model developed Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, PhD, BCBA-D, founder and executive director of CARD. Dr. Granpeesheh has dedicated over 30 years to helping individuals with autism fulfill their potential and lead healthy, productive lives. Since its founding in 1990, CARD has helped thousands of individuals affected by autism and their families access the services and supports they need. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in every 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with ASD, with one in 42 boys and one in 189 girls diagnosed. These 2014 figures represent a 30 percent increase since 2008. As the prevalence of ASD has increased, services for individuals 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. CARD strives to meet that need by continuously opening new offices throughout the country to provide top-quality ABA therapy across all populations.
