At TCARD, the entire family is heard and respected. We understand that being a brother, sister, parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, spouse, or friend to an individual on the Autism Spectrum can be very rewarding but also challenging at times. We are here for the entire support system of an individual with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

TCARD is dedicated to providing not just patient-centered care, but family-centered care. We aim to engage patients in the development of a well-conceived treatment plan that considers the medical, social, and cultural needs of the individual with ASD and the family. Families managing ASD want to know what is going to happen—pilots do not take off without a flight plan and architects do not break ground without a blueprint—but all too often, families are not given a written treatment plan for managing and improving their child’s ASD symptoms.

After receiving a diagnosis at TCARD, each family is provided with individualized treatment recommendations for the child and family. TCARD staff are available for on-going consultation long after the feedback appointment, when new questions and issues arise for families in the treatment process.

TCARD Vision

The vision of TCARD is to revolutionize the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders by creating a family-centered model of treatment where families actively participate in the individualized and comprehensive care of their child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
