Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD)


For up-to-date information about COVID-19, UF Health-Jacksonville has developed a website specifically collecting important updates and resources regarding the COVID-19 virus. This website contains the latest information and resources for patients, visitors, physicians and staff. The webpage is being updated frequently as new information and developments occur.

UM-NSU CARD has created an excellent Social Narrative for educating our children and family members about the COVID-19 virus.

Intake Packet

A link is provided for those wishing to complete the Intake Packet for various developmental pediatric programs. CARD services are NOT dependent upon completion of this packet. Parents or family members need only complete the intake packet when specifically requested to do so by staff.


CARD actively collects and maintains a wide range of materials in our reference library located in the office conference area. Items include books, videos, training materials, DVDs and CD-ROMs. Most items may be checked out from the library for 2 weeks at a time.

The conference area also contains a new computer workstation which may be used by constituents and family members to create individualized picture communication materials, watch DVDs, or play CD-ROMs from the library.

Helpful Links

CARD keeps a current directory of local providers and agencies that serve individuals with autism and related disabilities. Please call CARD at 633-0760 if you need assistance.
