Newly Diagnosed? Start Here

Did your child recently receive a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Are you an adult who was recently diagnosed?

We want to help. The Autism Society of North Carolina provides support and promotes opportunities that enhance the lives of individuals within the autism spectrum and their families.

Click the button above and sign up to receive our Welcome Packet by mail. You will also be contacted by one of our Autism Resource Specialists. They will connect you to resources and help you begin your journey with autism. Our Autism Resource Specialists are all parents of children or adults with autism themselves, so they have firsthand knowledge and a unique understanding of what you are going through. They also are trained professionals with many years of experience, and their assistance is free of charge. Please also register to attend the nearest “After the Diagnosis: Get Answers, Get Help, Get Going!” workshop or view the webinar series, “Understanding the Diagnosis” at your convenience.

 

How can I get connected?

Connect with us by subscribing to our email newsletter, liking us on Facebook, and following us on Twitter. Find an ASNC Chapter in your county. These groups are led by generous parents or family member volunteers who join together with other concerned individuals to create a welcoming and inclusive community of support for individuals with autism and their families.

How can I learn more?

The “Gain Knowledge” section of this website contains many resources for you: basic autism facts, free toolkits on popular topics, pages about common concerns, and a blog full of educational articles. We also offer a library of webinars as well as workshops and educational conferences around the state.
