Dear Friends,

August is a time for many transitions! The staff at FSU CARD hopes that back-to-school has been a smooth transition for all. Many of our clients are facing new classrooms, with new teachers and changing expectations, and we are aware of the bumps that may come along with this. Please reach out to CARD as needed to help support and stabilize these new transitions.

To provide the tools you need in your efforts to support students with ASD, we have an incredible lineup of free trainings coming your way over the next few months. See details in this newsletter and on the CARD website about:

  • Project 10 Transition Basics Training being offered in Pensacola, Panama City and Tallahassee
  • Gamer’s Delight and Girls Day Out social skills groups in Pensacola
  • PEERS for middle school students in Tallahassee

And many more! Check our website regularly as we will be posting additional training and workshop opportunities as they are scheduled.

Best,

Lindee Morgan, PhD
Director, FSU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities
