Feb 12, 2018, Auburn (CA) Journal: Autism center looking to help http://www.auburnjournal.com/article/2/12/18/autism-center-looking-help Last year the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) opened in Auburn and they are hoping to help more families in the area. “We’re here and we are ready to help,” said Operations Manager Alana Leal. CARD is a place for both children living on the autism spectrum and their parents to get resources, learning and help. … Some students work on talking or using communication devices. “A lot of behavioral issues are because they are not able to express what they want to say,” said Leal. There are 8 different rooms at the center catered to different needs and used as a classroom setting. They also have a sensory room with lights and stuff to touch for the kids who need it.
