CARD – USF: Center for Autism & Related Disabilities
CARD is a community based program, which means our staff members travel to visit our constituents in their homes, schools or wherever assistance is needed. No services are provided in our offices at USF or FGCU campuses. The state of Florida is divided by counties into seven regions with CARD professionals serving each area (known as catchment areas). Because our program is funded by the Florida legislature, all of our services are free.

iTaalk Autism Foundation
In January of 2010 the idea of iTaalk was born. The son of iTaalk President, Brooke Olson, received his first iPod® touch in August of 2009. Within the first four months his language blossomed and the results of his success were amazing his family, friends and therapists. If this success could be replicated for other children with ASD’s, then it was imperative that all children be given the opportunity and access to these interactive devices, and thus the original vision for iTaalk was formed.
After exploring the need in the community, it became apparent that the need was not only for the devices, but for the educational piece on how to use them as well. We now pride ourselves on our Training Series for families, “iTaalk 101-104,” as well as our Professional series “iTaalk 201-204.” We also provide an affordable Top 30 list of Apps that have been successful with children on the Autism spectrum. The incredible success stories and ideas on innovative ways to use the iPods®/iPads® with our children is what keeps us going. It is our dream to provide this training along with the interactive devices so that all children with an ASD can access this wonderful technology!
