The University of Miami Department of Psychology and Nova Southeastern University’s Department of Speech-Language Pathology opened UM-NSU Center for Autism & Related Disabilities’ (UM-NSU CARD) newest office at NSU Miramar Branch Library & Education Center on September 26, 2016.

The new UM-NSU CARD branch office is dedicated to transitioning individuals living on the autism spectrum and providing adult services within Broward County, thanks to funding from a private foundation and other CARD donors. The new office is home to many of the specialized support systems and programs CARD offers to its teenage and adult clients in Broward County, including social groups for adults, job clubs and training, and many more.
