Empowering neurodiverse individuals, families and communities, regionally and globally, through state-of-the-science clinical care, innovative research, and high-impact training.

CARD combines research, clinical service, a therapeutic day program, and training programs to unlock the potential of children with autism spectrum disorders. One of our major endeavors is developing effective new models of care for families and providers, whether locally, nationally, or internationally.

To improve recognition of the early signs of ASD among pediatricians, parents and early intervention providers, autism researcher Dr. Rebecca Landa of Kennedy Krieger Institute has developed this free 9-minute video tutorial on ASD behavioral signs in one-year-olds. The tutorial consists of six video clips comparing toddlers who show no signs of ASD to toddlers who show early signs of ASD. Each video is presented with voice-over explaining how the specific behaviors exhibited by the child, as they occur on screen, are either indicative of ASD or typical child development.
