Some of my greatest childhood memories are from family vacations. My mom and I have ridden on horseback down the Haleakala Crater in Maui, explored the Chichen Itza Mayan ruins in Mexico, and marveled at the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. However, along with all the excitement of traveling comes a great deal of stress. From checking bags and navigating through airport security to enduring flight delays and long layovers, traveling can be a real hassle. And while most people find traveling stressful, it can be especially difficult for families of children with autism.
The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), the world’s largest autism treatment center that provides state-of-the-art therapy, announces the open house of its all new CARD Assessment Center. The open house will be held on Wednesday, February 23, 2011, from 5pm–7pm at the CARD headquarters, located at 19019 Ventura Boulevard, Suite 100 in Tarzana, California.
