Adult Services

Why Become a Client?


As an autistic adult or a parent of an autistic adult, you should register with UM-NSU CARD to assist in empowering you with the information you need to be an effective self-advocate. When you register you will be assigned a Case Manager who can help you determine the kind of support you need and the programs which may be able to provide them. You will also be able to join our community programming for autistic adults, which includes support groups, social events, and skills training webinars. 

UM-NSU CARD will support you and your family in your journey through adulthood as you acquire the knowledge, enhance the skills, and make the connections to live a self-determined life. We know that your situation is unique so we work with you to address the issues you are facing whether you need employment support or would like to connect with other adults at one of our social groups. We are here to help!

To become a UM-NSU CARD client you must have received a formal Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis from a healthcare professional, the public school system or from Early Steps.
