The  Center for Autism Research (CAR) is a collaborative effort between The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania. CAR's primary mission is to understand the causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and develop effective treatments through research with infants through adults. Families who participate receive comprehensive assessment reports and are paid for their time and some travel expenses. CAR is also committed to serving the needs of families living with ASD through education and guidance. The new CAR Autism Roadmap seeks to help families answer questions about life with autism, whether they are new to the diagnosis or have lived with it for years, as well as connect them with resources in their communities via the CAR Resource Directory.

The Center for Autism Research and the Regional Autism Center at
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia invite you to

Next Steps Workshop for Families

A Workshop for Parents & Caregivers Supporting Young Children,          Newly Diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

This workshop is geared towards families with a young child recently diagnosed with ASD. Topics will include an overview of ASD and accompanying conditions, available therapies and treatments, how to decide what interventions to pursue, and tips for supporting families living with ASD.

Presenters will include experts in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, education, and special education law.

The workshop will also include a discussion and Q&A with a panel of parents who have a child diagnosed with ASD and have made the next steps with their children.
