The Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Inc.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 110 children in America, is diagnosed with autism. Autism is more prevalent than AIDS, pediatric cancer and diabetes combined.

“With statistics like that, many Lake Elsinore fans may know someone with a child with autism,” says CARD Temecula Managing Supervisor Amy Caveney, MA, BCBA. “We were are happy to bring awareness to the issue of autism, share valuable resources, and show community appreciation with this fun filled family day with Lake Elsinore Storm baseball team.”

The CARD co-hosted Autism Awareness Day event with The Lake Elsinore Storm is one of 20 nationwide celebrations hosted by the Center for Autism and Related Disorders this year, to recognize its 20 years of leading the way in the successful treatment of autism.
