About The Matthew Reardon Center

MRCA was founded by native Savannahian Kim Reardon and is named for her son. In 1993 when he was in kindergarten, Matthew Reardon contracted viral encephalitis, which caused permanent brain injury and epilepsy. At that time, Savannah had did not have facilities to treat children with serious illness such as his. The Reardon family and friends donated money to Memorial Health University Medical Center, which made medical care for neurological impairment available locally. Through their experiences, the Reardons learned that children suffering from neurological disorders have many needs beyond those that are physical. It was from this realization that the Matthew Reardon Center was born. As the incidence of autism increased dramatically, The Center refocused its resources specifically on the unique needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The Matthew Reardon Center for Autism operates the only year-round, day school in southeast Georgia for children with ASD. Furthermore, it promotes outreach and advocacy through forged partnerships with existing medical, educational, and community services in order to help these children reach their full potential and enhance their quality of life as well as that of their families. The Matthew Reardon Center for Autism is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, and relies on support of those who share our passion and vision. For more information, visit www.matthewreardon.org.
