What matters to the Gardner family?
Finding a cure for autism.
When Chuck and Sarah Gardner realized that clinicians and researchers weren’t talking to them about their son Chas’ autism, they vowed to change the way the world approaches neurodevelopmental disorders.
Working with other families, the Gardners spearheaded the founding of the M.I.N.D. Institute at UC Davis in order to further research in autism, fragile X and ADHD. The institute fosters interaction between parents, children and researchers and creates a foundation of hope for finding a cure.
