NEW YORK (PRWEB) January 23, 2019
Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) will be featured in a forthcoming documentary about resources for families in New York City’s autism community. Eurydice Roman’s film Au Type Documentary highlights CARD as a premier source for behavioral health treatment and for its efforts to increase autism awareness. The film is expected to be submitted to the 57th Annual New York Film Festival in 2019.
Roman, the parent of a child with autism, is promoting Au Type Documentary with the tagline, “Being a parent with a child with autism in New York is never easy. Here’s a movie for you.” The film aims to provide parents with a wide-ranging guide of resources available to them when their child is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a developmental disability that affects 1 out of every 40 children. Two of the people interviewed for Au Type Documentary are CARD New York’s regional manager Deidra King, MA, BCBA, and Jovanni Guzman, CARD regional manager designee. King and Guzman, along with Roman, explain what sets CARD apart as a valuable resource for families working to meet the needs of their children with ASD, including CARD’s commitment to wide-ranging outreach and awareness and its effort to ensure that applied behavior analysis (ABA) is available to New York Medicaid enrollees who are diagnosed with ASD.
“As a clinician in the field of autism and applied behavior analysis (ABA) for the past 18 years, I am honored to participate in this documentary that will help provide knowledge and support to the New York autism community,” said King. “As a community, we need to continue to bring awareness to the unique needs of the autism community as we highlight the resources available for families and ASD individuals.”
Au Type Documentary will be screened for free at Comisionado Dominicano de Cultura in New York City on Friday, February 8, 2019. For more information and to register to attend, please visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/au-type-documentary-tickets-54017188866.
