This has been a challenging few weeks for all of us as we deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. During this difficult time, K-CART will continue to provide the supports and resources needed by our community, including maintaining our resource line. One major adjustment that we have had to make is that we are postponing our annual Autism Across the Lifespan conference. We regret this change as the meeting is a highlight of our year, but the safety and well-being of our community is paramount. We will contact all of you once we have rescheduled the conference, and all registered individuals will be receiving a full refund.

In lieu of the conference and in an effort to provide timely information, K-CART will be hosting a free webinar on “Managing the coronavirus as an individual with ASD or caregiver”. A panel of psychologists and parents will share expert guidance and tips, provide practical examples for structuring life during school closures, and participate in a question and answer with our registered audience. The webinar will occur on Friday, April 10 from 1:00-2:30 pm. Registrants will be provided a link to the webinar.

We hope to see you all there!

In collaboration with our LEND partners, K-CART also will be sharing a series of video tutorials for managing issues specific to the coronavirus spread, including how to structure the day for your child with ASD, and how to manage your own stress as a caregiver. We will share links to these videos on our website and Facebook page as soon as they are ready. 
We also have compiled multiple external resources that may be useful for you right now.

While our Center team is working remotely and practicing social distancing, we remain available for questions or concerns that you may have. Do not hesitate to contact us via phone 913-897-8471 or email   

Please take care of yourselves and your families, and remember that this too eventually will pass.
