CARD promotes public awareness of ASD for early diagnosis and treatment, as well as public awareness about CARD and its services for families, schools, agencies, and community members. Our public awareness efforts include our website, our montly e-newsletters, called The Report CARD, promoting the Autism License Plate, and through distribution of pamphlets and educational materials at community events. We also provide 30-60 minute What is CARD? and What is ASD? seminars to local agencies.
To request UCF CARD presence at a public awareness event, or a brief presentation at your agency meeting, breakfast or event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Public Awareness Request. We will do our best to provide a staff member, constituency board member, or intern to meet your needs. Unfortunately, due to the high demand for other CARD services, we may not be able to honor every request. Please note that, as a policy, UCF CARD is unable to pay for booth rental or other fees associated with many fairs and other awareness events.
We hope everyone and their families and friends will purchase and Autism License Plate. Funds from these plates support CARD and local agency grants for individuals with ASD in the state of Florida.
