Association for Children at Risk
Founded in 1991, the Association for Children at RiskÂ (the Association) was created due to the lack of a proper educational-therapeutic treatment program forÂ young children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The Association works in 137 educational settings (e.g., day care centers, kindergartens), treating close to 1,000 children with ASD.Â The Associationâ€™s Cohen-Harris Resilience Center provides treatment, counsel, development, training and research on preparedness, prevention, intervention and rehabilitation as well as in development of civilian resilience during traumas, crises and mass disasters on the local, national and international levels.
