Autism Society of America Gives Top Honor to Treatment Pioneer in Phoenix

PHOENIX, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, will be recognized with one of the Autism Society of America's highest honors -- the Wendy F. Miller National Recognition Award for Professional of the Year -- at the organization's 38th annual national conference and exposition July 11-14 in Phoenix.

The award recognizes significant contributions made by a psychologist, psychiatrist or other physician, educator, speech-language therapist, social worker, occupational therapist or researcher in the autism field. CARD, which earlier this year opened its newest office in Phoenix, is one of the world's largest and most experienced organizations effectively treating children with autism and related disorders.

"I am truly humbled and gratified to be recognized for the work that CARD does to help children and young adults with autism attain their highest potential," Dr. Granpeesheh said. "It is especially fortuitous to receive this honor in Arizona because CARD has only just recently introduced our services in the state. Also, the work we do at CARD is the epitome of a team effort, and so the credit for any recognition that comes our way must go to our hardworking and highly committed therapists and researchers."

Founded by Dr. Granpeesheh in 1990 and headquartered in Tarzana, California, CARD excels in early intervention, intensive Applied Behavior Analysis therapy and research. Through a highly specialized curriculum for both early intervention and through the early stages of adulthood, Dr. Granpeesheh has consistently demonstrated the effectiveness of ABA intervention.

ABA is an intensive one-on-one style of therapy that uses careful observation and positive reinforcement to help autistic children develop social, motor and verbal skills. It is also the only approach that has been scientifically verified as effective in treating autism.

CARD now has 18 satellite s ites around with world: Nine in California as well as sites in Virginia, New York, Texas, England, Australia, New Zealand and now Arizona.
