Our Mission
The Center for Autism & Related Disabilities (CARD) provides support and assistance with the goal of optimizing the potential of people with autism and related disabilities.

Philosophy & Values

CARD is founded on the strong belief that:

  • All people, regardless of their abilities or disabilities, have the right to live as full participants in society.

  • All people have the right to be treated with dignity and understanding.

  • People with disabilities are members of families. All families have strengths and capacities. They have right to be treated with sensitivity and respect and as integral members of a person's support system.

  • People with autism and related disabilities have the right to be regarded as individuals who need services and supports that are based on their unique characteristics.
