Welcome to the CAR Autism Roadmap™
How Can We Help?
We are glad you turned to us for help.
How old is the individual you are concerned about?
Learn about life cycle events, sharing an ASD diagnosis, navigating social situations, finding childcare, celebrating holidays, supporting siblings, developing hygiene habits, fostering independent living, and more.
Getting a diagnosis of ASD can be quite difficult. Long wait lists to see specialists. Confusing symptoms to describe. Who should you even call? Learn what you can do now -- even if you are on a waitlist.
Learn about educational services for students with ASD from birth through adulthood and how to qualify and make the most out of regular education, special education, gifted education, and post-secondary programs.
Learn about available treatments for ASD and how to find them, how to evaluate if a treatment is working, and how to make the best use of insurance and your money.
This is your one-stop location for laws and regulations that commonly affect individuals with ASD, plus a primer on government benefits, including how to qualify and apply for them.
Learn how to keep your child safe at home and in the community and how to avoid negative interactions with the criminal justice system.
Learn how to find a support network, obtain childcare and respite, make community outings more manageable, and plan a family vacation.
All too often, individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder are unemployed or underemployed. Learn how to develop job skills, find a job, and navigate the workplace.
