Center for Autism and Related Disorders Announces Partnership with Arizona Cardinals to Raise Awareness for Autism Treatment
Date:9/9/2017

Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) announced today that it will team up with the National Football League’s Arizona Cardinals to host a game that will benefit ACT (Autism Care and Treatment) Today!, the national nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise awareness for autism treatment and help families affected by autism access the resources they need, including health care, safety equipment, and technology. This special event is a prime example of the many local events sponsored by CARD to raise awareness for autism treatment.

“CARD is excited to team with the Cardinals to host an evening that pairs fun and a great cause," said Kori Fronda, operations manager at CARD Chandler. "Raising awareness and funding for the autism community while also providing an opportunity to see a great game is a win-win.”

The game will take place on Sunday, October 15, beginning at 1:05pm, when the Cardinals face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. CARD guests will be recognized on the jumbo screen during the early moments of the game. To learn more and buy tickets for $67, please contact Kori Fronda at k.fronda(at)centerforautism(dot)com or (480) 812-2110, ext. 1807.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in every 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (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 the growing need for services by continuously opening new offices throughout the country to provide top-quality ABA therapy across all populations. As a result of its unprecedented growth, CARD is hiring entry-level and experienced clinicians and administrative staff at many of its locations.

About ACT Today!
ACT Today! stands for Autism Care and Treatment Today! ACT Today! is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to raise awareness and provide treatment services and support to families to help their children with autism achieve their full potential. Their goal is to introduce and help facilitate early and on-going treatment by providing the necessary resources (including referrals, funding and guidance) to individuals with autism and their families. Studies demonstrate that early and intense intervention is important when treating individuals with autism, yet sadly very few of the effective treatments are covered by medical insurance and families are often delegated to piece together a treatment program for their child via multiple funding sources. Often, the child with autism must go without vital interventions due to financial restraints. ACT Today! strives to provide necessary services so that each child with autism can reach his or her highest potential.
