WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. (PRWEB) November 08, 2018
Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) announces the opening of a new treatment center, joining over 200 centers across the United States, as well as new office locations for five others. CARD services are now available in Lakeland, FL, and CARD centers in the communities of Lansing, MI; Lincoln, NE; Omaha, NE; Silverdale, WA; and Towson, MD, have relocated Individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder can access treatment without delay.
CARD is the world’s largest provider of top-quality, evidence-based autism treatment, effectively treating individuals of all ages who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (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 treats the behaviors and deficits commonly associated with ASD using the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA), the only evidence-based treatment for ASD. Services are available in CARD 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.
In addition to communication, adaptive, play, and motor skills, CARD’s unique curriculum builds on these foundational skills to develop more advanced social, cognition, and executive function skills, such as understanding sarcasm, solving social and non-social problems, and identifying metaphors. These skills optimize socialization and communication skills and help individuals with ASD experience positive social interactions with their peers and family members.
“We are humbled by the enormous outpouring of enthusiasm we have encountered from families in Lakeland, Florida, who have been eager to access services,” said Doreen Granpeesheh, PhD, BCBA-D, founder and executive director of CARD. “Several other centers have also relocated to new facilities as we identify more convenient locations, and we will continue to provide the care that our families in those cities have come to appreciate.”
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.
