About CARD

Our Mission

The Center for Autism and Related Disabilities at the University at Albany (CARD Albany) is a university-affiliated resource center that brings research and practice together in community settings. CARD Albany provides evidence-based training and support to families and professionals, and through ongoing research, contributes knowledge to the field of autism spectrum disorders.

A hallmark of CARD Albany programs is the integration of research, training and practice. Staff represent many disciplines - including psychology, education, social work, behavior analysis, and rehabilitation counseling - which contributes to our comprehensive understanding of autism spectrum disorders.
