The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) at Kennedy Krieger Institute now with locations in both Baltimore and Odenton, Maryland

The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) at Kennedy Krieger Institute is a multifaceted, interdisciplinary program serving children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), their families, and professionals in the community. We base our services and trainings on evidenced-based practices. One of our major endeavors is to develop new models of effective care that can be distributed to families and care providers on a national and international level.

Sharing Treatment and Autism Resources (STAR) trainings provide professionals, parents, and family members of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) with a comprehensive offering of current resources available on autism, as well as an overview of research-based treatment elements that have been recommended for program design and delivery in the educational system(s).
