“This presentation will introduce parents and practitioners to a comprehensive and proven treatment program for individuals with autism between the ages of 8 and 21 years,” says Sarah Cho, CARD II presenter and Managing Supervisor of CARD Fresno. “The broad scope of this unique curriculum allows therapists to individualized treatment for a wide range of skills and deficits.”

Specifically, the program can assist students whose families require support managing problem behaviors, as well as teaching basic communication skills and adaptive skills (i.e.: toileting, dressing and making meals). CARD II can also assist students who are mildly affected and may need assistance only to acquire more complex social skills and apply them with their peers in their natural environments. The CARD II goal is to teach independence skills, appropriate social activities and relationship building, as well as many others.

Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder that is marked by the presence of impaired social interaction and communication and a restricted repertoire of activities and interests. The prevalence of autism has been estimated to affect as many as 1 in 150 children and is four times more common in boys than in girls.
