SEE YOU THERE!
CARD has over 1,800 individual clients, both children and adults, with autism and related disabilities and in 2010, provided direct individual assistance to more than 500 individuals locally. Autism is more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined, yet receives far less funding than these other diseases. It is the fastest rising developmental disability in the United States.
We hope you will join us to support CARD by participating in or sponsoring Stomp the Swamp.
