CARD® Capital Acquires The Gateway Center in Henderson, Nevada
The Gateway Center will now operate as CARD® Henderson to provide evidence-based services to individuals of all ages with autism spectrum disorder.
HENDERSON, Nev. (April 7, 2015) – CARD® Capital, the investment arm of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), today announced the acquisition of The Gateway Center. The Gateway Center is a provider of evidence-based services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) located at 74 N. Pecos Road, Suite C in Henderson, Nev. Hereafter, it will operate as CARD® Henderson The acquisition increases CARD’s national footprint to 38 centers across 14 states. CARD® is one of the world’s largest providers of evidence-based autism treatment, using the principles and procedures of applied behavior analysis (ABA) to treat individuals of all ages diagnosed with autism. Over the past 40 years, thousands of research studies have documented the effectiveness of ABA in treating the deficits and behaviors associated with ASD, and ABA is the only treatment for ASD that has been empirically proven to produce significant long-term improvement and, in some cases, recovery from autism.
“In my practice, I have seen the great need for expanded autism services in the Las Vegas Valley,” said Dr. Jonathan Still of The Gateway Center. “We are excited to have CARD® and its highly regarded, evidence-based treatment model join our community, providing individuals and families affected by autism with vital new resources.”
The Gateway Center was founded by Jonathan Still, MD, a board certified psychiatrist, and Meredith Still to increase access to specialized treatments and to improve the quality of life for individuals with behavioral and developmental disorders. Dr. Still will continue to operate a private practice out of CARD® Henderson and serve as an advisor. “We feel extremely fortunate to be working with a great team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) in Henderson,” said CARD® director of operations, Sarah Cho. “We are looking forward to bringing the CARD® Model to Nevada and providing top-quality ABA services to the individuals on the autism spectrum in Henderson.”
