Henderson autism treatment center sold

CARD Capital, the investment arm of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, has acquired The Gateway Center in Henderson.

The provider of evidence-based services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder will operate as CARD Henderson as a result of the acquisition.

“In my practice, I have seen the great need for expanded autism services in the Las Vegas Valley,” Dr. Jonathan Still of The Gateway Center said in a statement. “We are excited to have CARD and its highly regarded, evidence-based treatment model join our community, providing individuals and families affected by autism with vital new resources.”

CARD Capital is an investing platform that focuses on product and service solutions for behavioral health. It invests in the full life cycle of companies, including incubation, seed funding, growth equity, and buy-outs.

CARD’s national footprint will increase to 38 offices across 14 states. It’s one of the world’s largest providers of evidence-based autism treatment, using the principles and procedures of applied behavior analysis to treat individuals of all ages diagnosed with autism.

“We feel extremely fortunate to be working with a great team of board certified behavior analysts in Henderson,” Sarah Cho, CARD operations director, said in a statement. “We are looking forward to bringing the CARD Model to Nevada and providing top-quality applied behavior analysis services to the children, teens, and adults on the autism spectrum in Henderson.”

Painting as team building

Wine and Design, a paint and sip art studio, is opening in Las Vegas on May 1 and may be a new team building activity for companies.

The Las Vegas location, 6535 N. Buffalo Drive, will be the 52nd franchise for Wine and Design CEO and founder Harriet Mills, who started her first paint and sip studio in Raleigh, N.C.

Wine and Design hosts painting sessions, which are taught by local artists who provide step-by-step instructions that result in an individualized artwork. The company’s Design On Wheels brings the painting party to an office or event venue and offers a variety of team building packages, which merge art, teamwork and fun for a business or organization.

The Paint It Degas package allows companies to choose a painting from Wine and Designs more than 2,000 painting archive. While employees are working on their artwork, they’re able to answer questions about their workplace and be rewarded for their knowledge.

Monet Montage package begins with an icebreaker activity before each person is given a canvas and is taught, step by step, how to finish a work of art. Once everyone is done, the final products are displayed together to show that individuality is what makes the whole business work.

Pablo’s Puzzle package takes “thinking out of the box” to the next level. Following an icebreaker activity, the group is divided into teams in which members will work together to create canvases that are part of one puzzle. Questions about teammates and the business are discussed and answered.

This Pablo’s Puzzle package and the painting can be customized to incorporate the business, department goals or appreciation for the individual employees.
