In Greensboro, Raleigh, and Davidson, IGNITE community centers offer activities and educational groups that foster independence and social interaction for young adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.

Adult Supports:

Programs in Wilmington and Greenville for individuals ages 16-28, of any ability, focus on independent-living skills, job readiness, social engagement, and recreation while incorporating skill development in other areas necessary for a successful transition to adulthood.

Independent adults, 18 and older with high-functioning autism, are invited to spend time at Camp Royall with friends during occasional weekend retreats. Activities include leisure and recreation at camp as well as outings in the community.

Employment Supports:

Our employment programs offer guidance on choosing a career field, training in some of the “soft skills” needed to land and keep a job, and support to thrive on the job. Services vary by region.

They can answer questions, find resources in your community, and guide you through attaining services.
