Executive Director/Founder at CENTER FOR AUTISM AND RELATED DISORDERS
Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh (www.doreengranpeesheh.com) has dedicated over thirty years to helping individuals with autism lead healthy, productive lives. While completing her education at UCLA, Dr. Granpeesheh worked with Dr. Ivar Lovaas on the groundbreaking outcome study published in 1987 which showed a recovery rate of close to 50% among the study’s research participants who had been diagnosed with autism. Dr. Granpeesheh built on Dr. Lovaas’s work, developing the CARD Model, which is a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to treating autism. In August, 2009, CARD researchers published "Retrospective Analysis of Clinical Records in 38 Cases of Recovery from Autism” in the Annals of Clinical Psychiatry, showing that recovery from autism is possible with early, intensive intervention using ABA. This study echoed the results of Dr. Lovaas’s earlier study and garnered Dr. Granpeesheh the prestigious George Winokur Research Award. In 1990, Dr. Granpeesheh founded the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, also known as CARD (www.centerforautism.com). Under Dr. Granpeesheh’s leadership, CARD has become one of the world’s largest providers of ABA-based treatment for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Today, CARD has nearly 30 locations throughout the United States and internationally, employs nearly 1,500 highly-skilled employees, and is a leading employer of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs).
