Center for Autism and Related Disorders Brings Critical Resources to West Los Angeles Autism Community
The newly opened autism treatment center will offer treatment using applied behavior analysis to individuals of all ages diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
LOS ANGELES (Jan. 14, 2016) – Leading autism treatment provider Center for Autism and Related Disorders, (CARD) today announced the opening of its new treatment center at 11835 West Olympic Boulevard, Suite 140E in Los Angeles, Calif. 90064. CARD provides a variety of services worldwide using the evidence-based principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) to treat the deficits and behaviors commonly associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ABA is the only scientifically validated treatment for ASD, and research shows that it is most effective when delivered early and at a high level of intensity. Recognized as a global leader in the field of autism treatment, CARD has nearly 50 locations throughout the United States and 19 locations throughout California.
CARD’s new West Los Angeles treatment center offers center-based services, parent training, school services, community skills groups, and social skills groups for individuals of all ages with ASD. By creating individualized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s specific needs, CARD maximizes outcomes for every patient. CARD patients receive treatment from top-quality ABA technicians and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) supervisors. Services are available in a variety of languages, including English and Spanish.
“We are excited about the opening of our new Los Angeles center,” said Marina Bulkin, CARD regional manager. “We have been warmly welcomed by the local autism community and recognize the importance of increasing accessibility to autism treatment for families in West Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Culver City, Venice, and the surrounding communities.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in every 68 individuals in America is diagnosed with ASD, with one in 42 boys and one in 189 girls diagnosed. This is more than a 30 percent increase since the 2008 report. The increase in autism diagnoses and the lack of resources available to families in many communities leave parents struggling to access the services that are crucial to their individual’s development. CARD strives to ensure access to top-quality, evidence-based autism treatment by expanding to new locations throughout the United States. .
