CARD is a Florida Department of Education Discretionary Project. As such, we work closely with our school district partners in building capacity in our schools and among our collaborating teachers and education team members. Complementary to our efforts to support individuals with autism or related disabilities and their families, CARD also partners with local school systems, educators, and other service providers across South Florida to provide extensive training, classroom support, and programmatic technical assistance that ultimately enhances the functioning of our clients and their families. Our professional staff works collaboratively with our partnering districts and school administrators to provide teachers and service providers the strategies and supports necessary to best meet the needs of their students with ASDs or other related disabilities. Our staff coordinates faculty, staff, and parent workshops as well as school-based autism awareness events to build knowledge and capacity and, perhaps most importantly, to promote the generalization of skills across settings (i.e., home, school, community). To request our assistance in your educational environment, please complete and return this form. If you would like us to provide training on a specific topic, please fill out this form.
