Center for Autism and Related Disorders Addresses Autism Epidemic by Opening State-of-the-Art Treatment Center in San Marcos

SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), one of the world’s largest and most effective autism treatment providers offering evidence-based, state-of-the-art therapy, will host the grand opening of its San Marcos treatment center on Saturday, August 17, 2013, from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m., at 334 Via Vera Cruz. The community is invited to meet the staff, tour the facility, and review the cutting-edge CARD curriculum. The afternoon will include a reception, presentations, live entertainment, and child-friendly activities. Refreshments and childcare will be provided. Attendees must RSVP to D.Plump(at)centerforautism(dot)com.

"We are excited to expand our services to the San Marcos area,” said operations manager, Christopher Shilling. “We want to enable those who live in the San Marcos and surrounding area to receive the effective treatment that they need to reach their highest potential.”

CARD uses the principles and procedures of applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy. Services include center-based treatment, home-based services, school shadowing, and parent training. The CARD model of treatment includes over 3,500 lessons in eight areas of learning: academic, adaptive, cognition, executive function, language, motor, play and social skills. In addition, the model’s relationship-building, cognitive, and executive-functioning programs are known throughout the world for their focus on developing advanced skills, such as perspective taking (i.e., inferring others’ thoughts and feelings) and developing and maintaining friendships.

CARD has developed and now utilizes technology to increase access to autism treatment. Skills®, the online autism solution, was developed by CARD and is based on over 40 years of research on child development. CARD supervisors and therapists use the Skills® program to assess a child’s strengths and challenges, design a treatment plan, and track progress through integrated reports, graphs, and timelines.

“At CARD we strive to stay on the frontline of technology to help treat individuals with autism,” said clinical manager, Heather Barmakian. “We offer patients cost-effective, individualized treatment that leads to measurable results for each person and, in some cases, recovery.”

In August, 2009, CARD researchers published "Retrospective Analysis of Clinical Records in 38 Cases of Recovery from Autism” in the Annals of Clinical Psychiatry, showing that recovery from autism is possible.
