ROSEBURG, Ore. -- People with autism and their families have a new place to get support in Douglas County.

The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) opened their first Douglas County facility in Roseburg in May.

Since the opening, staff said they already have seven full-time clients and are growing quickly.

CARD has more than 200 locations around the country with 17 of them being in Oregon. However, the closest locations to Douglas County used to be Eugene and Medford. Staff said they had been serving clients in Douglas County for the last few years through video calls and home visits.

Now, staff members are excited to have a physical location in Roseburg because they’re able to expand their reach.

Christina Mills, the mother of a client, said it’s a relief to have a physical location in Roseburg because her son is finally getting the support he needed.

“I know they care about my son and they're going to have his best interest,” said Mills. “They'll be waiting at the door when he gets there."

Staff from CARD said they specialize in Applied Behavioral Analysis, or ABA therapy, which is a treatment that focuses on teaching people with autism behavioral skills over time.
