Grammy Winner Freedom Williams, best known for his chart-topping songs with C & C Music Factory, has announced he will join forces with the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Inc. (CARD), the world's largest organization effectively treating children with autism. Freedom will headline the CARD Concert on Sunday, June 13, 2010 at Playland Amusement Park in Rye, New York. The event will be co-hosted by autism expert and CARD Founder Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh and Comedian Tony Roberts.
The free, community concert will be held from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.

"It's an exciting time for us and we want to celebrate, not only the great strides our clients have made, but bring awareness to the issue of autism," says CARD New York, Co-Managing Supervisor Frank Lo Curto, MS. "We are thrilled that Freedom is helping us bring autism awareness to the community."

Recent research conducted by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 110 children is diagnosed with autism in America. "With numbers like that, a lot of people most likely know someone with a child with autism," says Freedom. "I hope my role in this community event will bring more awareness to autism. I'm honored to be a part of this exciting day."

CARD New York is one of 20 clinics worldwide that the Center for Autism and Related Disorders established to provide effective Applied Behavior Analysis-based therapy and parent training. "We've had great success with our clients and have even recovered many children from autism. These children go on to attend regular school, develop friendships, and lead happy lives," said Lo Curto. "We're also celebrating the Center for Autism and Related Disorders' 20th anniversary of leading the way in the successful treatment of autism."
Admission to the CARD Concert is free.

The CARD New York Concert is one of 20 community-wide events held across the globe this year, in celebration of CARD's 20 years of service in the autism community.
