Happy Halloween From Rochester, New York

Rochester

On October 25th, CARD’s Fairport office got a spooky makeover… The Ghouls and Gobblins came over to our office for our Halloween party around 6, and trick or treated their way around the office! The office was spooked out with pumpkins, witches, ghosts, and even the occasion black cat (don’t worry, the mice were hiding!).
When the children all came in, they met a NFL referee, a penguin, and even Mini Mouse! Of course, our kiddo’s had the best costumes ever- including a tiger, the entire family from The Incredibles, and even a polar bear!

Speaking Out for Autism

Rochester

I am fairly new to the Autism Community. Before working for CARD, the only experience I had with autism was J-Mac, my high school classmate who was diagnosed with autism and was our high schools’ basketball manager. Our senior year he stepped in and single handily scored 20 points in four minutes during our senior game. Other than that, I was clueless. Cut to July 2012, and all of a sudden I was the new Operations Manager for the Center for Autism and Related Disorders. It took a while to wrap my head around what we really do and I didn’t really didn’t see the community aspect of autism until this past weekend. Our office contributed to the Autism Speaks: Rochester Walk for Autism.
