The Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, (CARD), from the University of Central Florida, and its well-respected team, has also been most generous to receive Mr. Amato who enjoys in promoteing the Center’s cause and efforts in Central Florida.

When CARD events occur that are inclusive of more elderly adults on the Spectrum, Mr. Amato participates in group discussions and one-on-one conversations towards encouragement and diverse topics to those wishing to participate. Thus far, these gatherings have been coordinated with CARD Representative, Ms. Gesa Barto, in the Central Florida area.
