Help Us Reach Our Goal!
CARD's goal is to raise $25,000 to support the development of an app for an innovative video-guided autism screener aimed that could be completed by parents at their convenience. The aim is for this new screener to support earlier detection of autism, and earlier access to intervention in order to improve outcomes for children with autism.
CARD's 20th Annual Autism Conference
After careful consideration, CARD’s 20th Annual Autism Conference slated to be held in-person this October will be postponed as we transform our program into a virtual event. The good news is we will continue to offer virtual learning opportunities while we make this transition. More information coming soon!
