Individuals with Autism

Rob has made tremendous improvements with help from the staff. They have taught him to help with household and self-help tasks, and his expressive language has significantly improved. He enjoys his craft work and loves volunteering out in the community.

The Autism Society of North Carolina respects and values the uniqueness of all individuals on the autism spectrum. When provided the opportunity, each person can make a unique contribution to his/her family, community, and society. We empower and support individuals on the autism spectrum to reach their potential through self-advocacy, greater independence, and integration in their communities.

Individuals on the autism spectrum are a vital part of the Autism Society of North Carolina, serving as voices for the community locally and on our governing Board. If you are an individual living with autism, we want you to become part of our organization.

The Autism Society of North Carolina provides recreational opportunities, educational resources, and direct care services. Local Autism Resource Specialists are available to connect individuals with autism to a variety of resources, assist them with accessing services, and facilitate networking with other members of the autism community. Employment assistance, understanding your rights, and a variety of other supports can be found throughout the state. Camp Royall hosts adult retreat weekends during many months and includes a week of overnight recreational programming during the summer. Many social groups and networking opportunities are available.
