CIS (CARD Integrated Services) for Adults
CIS is a unique day program for adults on the autism spectrum. The newly added adult curriculum covers every component of adult life with goals and objectives developed and ranked to meet the adult’s short-term and long-term goals. CIS also offers hands on practice for general and/or specific vocational skills for adults that are preparing or ready to enter the workforce. CIS offers onsite internships for adult clients as well as off-site internships with or without support through community partners.
CBS provides on-site 1:1 ABA treatment for individuals of all ages on the autism spectrum. Clients are also able to practice socialization skills by interacting with peers and other adults at the center. There is an added convenience for the working parent as parents/guardians do not need to be present during CBS sessions. Additionally, clients are able to actively practice generalization of mastered skills across people, environments, time and stimuli while at the center.
CARD's overall purpose is to help each student achieve as much as they can and reach their maximum potential. CARD understands that students with autism and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) present unique challenges to education. By using research based and proven methodologies and an individualized curriculum, the unique needs of each student can be met. Through our assessment, curriculum, and procedures we can provide an environment to optimize the learning of our students and help them achieve academically, behaviorally, and socially.
CARD'S philosophy is that children with Autism and Autism spectrum disorders should be treated through the use of applied behavior analysis. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a scientifically proven methodology with decades of research. By manipulating antecedents and consequences in combination with discrete trial teaching and other research proven technologies an optimum environment for children with Autism and Autism spectrum disorders can be created. CARD’s philosophy is also that each child with autism or an autism spectrum disorder is an individual and programming and techniques should be tailored to their individual strengths and weaknesses.
CARD's primary objective is to help each client attain his or her maximum potential in the least restrictive environment via behaviorally-based intervention. Each client’s program is individualized in accordance with the particular deficits and skills identified through assessment, as well as the maladaptive behaviors exhibited by the client. Skill deficits and maladaptive behaviors can be defined as those which impede an individual’s overall functioning and ability to learn.
