Dear Friends,

School is quickly approaching! The staff at FSU CARD has been working hard this summer to find creative ways to support our districts and families. We hope that your last few weeks of summer are well spent.

We are very excited to announce that our very first Northwest Florida Autism Summer Institute in Milton, Florida is quickly approaching. CARD is hosting this event in conjunction with Santa Rosa County Schools, Escambia County Schools and Autism Pensacola. The three-day training will cover such topics as improving social skills, classroom behavior management and overcoming barriers to implementing positive behavioral strategies. The training is full, but we do have a wait list for those interested in attending. You may contact Dr. Chrissy Ogilvie if you have questions.

As always, we want to thank you for your continued support of our organization. Remember, in order for CARD to be a service to our community we must share news and information about CARD with area professionals and individuals. If you or someone you know has a diagnosis, or is suspected of having autism spectrum disorder or a related disability, do not hesitate to contact our office for a referral packet and learn how to become a client so that we can provide services that may be helpful to you or someone you know.

Special Needs Registry for Emergency Management

The Florida Division of Emergency Management, in coordination with each local emergency management agency in the state, developed a registry to allow residents with special needs to register with their local emergency management agency to receive assistance during a disaster. The registry also allows facilities that provide assistance to individuals with special needs a system to register. The statewide registry provides first responders with valuable information to prepare for disasters or other emergencies.
