SPECIAL 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION!
Thank you for sharing our history- and for being a part of our future
If you have been following Autism Dispatch over the past few months, you know that we're celebrating
CAR's 10th Anniversary
We are excited to share with you a
honoring the milestones you have made possible, and to show you some of the game-changing discoveries that are now within reach.
It is energizing and inspiring to see this community grow larger and stronger with each passing year. Every child, self-advocate, family member, support professional, and donor plays an integral role in improving our understanding of ASD so we can better meet the needs of individuals and families affected by ASD and related conditions through every stage of life.
Looking ahead to the next decade, we see a clear path toward achieving our ultimate goal of improving clinical care for individuals with autism. Through continuous innovation, the power of predictive analytics and big data, we will vastly improve clinicians' ability to support individuals with autism in a personalized way as their needs change over the course of a lifetime. Our report highlights some of the ways CAR is already using technology to enhance both research and clinical care.
One thing we know for certain, none of our past or future achievements would be possible without you sharing your time, experiences, ideas, and hopes with us.
We invite you to peruse the pages of our
10th anniversary report
, and welcome every opportunity to hear your thoughts, your questions, your concerns, and your own stories. We are in this together, and we are honored to be on this journey with you.
Very truly yours,
Dana Weidig, Outreach Manager
and the entire CAR family
There are many ways to get involved with CAR! Advances in understanding autism and related disorders are only possible as a direct result of the participation of individuals and families, and with the support of generous donors.
These full-day and half-day workshops are offered throughout the year to support families, professionals, and self-advocates as they navigate an autism diagnosis during childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Attendees hear from CHOP clinicians, family panelists, and resource experts.
