The San Jose office for the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD, Inc.) was proud to participate again this year in the Bay Area Walk Now event sponsored by Autism Speaks, a non-profit organization supporting families affected with Autism. This marked the 11th year that this walk has taken place in the city of San Jose, CA at History Park at Kelly Park.
CARD is hosting a series of seminars, “California Insurance Funding for Autism Treatment,” to educate families and other caregivers about the California Autism Insurance Mandate (SB 946). As of July 1, the law requires most insurance providers to cover behavioral health treatment, including applied behavior analysis, for individuals on the autism spectrum. The free, two-hour seminars will be held from July 28 to August 25, 2012 at CARD centers in Fresno, the East Bay, Garden Grove, Sacramento, San Diego, and Tarzana.
