The Center for Autism & Related
Disabilities (CARD) provides support and assistance with the
goal of optimizing the potential of people with autism and
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.
people have the right to be treated with dignity and
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.
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.
Never allow yourself or anyone else to
underestimate your child's potential. Given the
proper supports and instruction all children
are capable of learning!"
