Every day, our clinicians ensure that thousands of CARD families experience the joy of a loved one making progress toward individualized goals
WOODLAND HILLS, Calif (PRWEB) May 13, 2019
Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) announces the opening of ten new treatment centers, which will join its expansive network of more than 230 centers across 33 states. CARD specializes in using the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy which is a scientifically validated treatment for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Timely access to treatment plays a critical role in optimal outcomes, and CARD is committed to identifying and filling gaps in access to treatment. The new centers are located in Monterey Park, CA; East Sacramento, CA; Medford, OR; Boulder, CO; Houston, TX; O’Hare, IL; Gonzales, LA; Annapolis, MD; Richmond, VA; and Ashburn, VA.
CARD is the world’s largest provider of top-quality, evidence-based autism treatment, effectively treating individuals of all ages who are diagnosed with ASD. Through a network of highly trained behavior analysts, behavior technicians, and researchers, CARD develops and implements quality individualized treatment programs, which lead to success and, in some cases, recovery.
CARD therapy sessions are available in centers and patient homes, schools, and communities. CARD pioneered the center-based model when researchers documented that individuals acquire skills in a center-based program at approximately twice the pace as in a home setting.
“Every day, our clinicians ensure that thousands of CARD families experience the joy of a loved one making progress toward individualized goals,” said Doreen Granpeesheh, PhD, BCBA-D, CARD founder and executive director. “Each new center represents increased access to the critical services and supports that make that progress possible.”
In addition to traditional 1:1 intensive ABA programs, CARD offers focused ABA programs and several targeted programs, including feeding, pill swallowing, social skills, groups, short and long-term treatment of severe problem behavior, and more focused parent training. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate in parent/caregiver training, which is available during non-traditional work hours and online.
