Center for Autism and Related Disorders Announces Grand Opening of Nine New Treatment Centers with No Waiting List
Date:7/27/2018

Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) has opened nine new locations across the United States, joining more than 200 centers across 32 states. The new centers are located in Cupertino, CA; Salinas, CA; Houston, TX; Mashpee, MA; Providence, RI; Woburn, MA; Tacoma, WA; Tigard, OR and Youngsville, LA. Individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder can access treatment without delay. In keeping with its social justice initiative to provide services across all populations, the locations in California, Massachusetts, Washington, Oregon, and Louisiana welcome Medicaid patients, as well as all private insurance.

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.

“Once we realized the potential for individuals with autism to increase their rate of skill acquisition, we moved quickly to offer center-based services to all of our families,” explained Dr. Dennis Dixon, CARD’s chief science officer.

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 skills and help individuals with ASD experience positive social interactions with their peers and family members.

“As a mother of three, I understand how important it is for families to choose the right provider for their children, which is why I am so committed to the ongoing research that continues to advance the field of ABA,” said Doreen Granpeesheh, PhD, BCBA-D, founder of CARD. “I am confident parents have made the best decision for their child when they choose CARD, and I know that our highly qualified staff are on-hand to help children and their families flourish.”

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.
