Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development 2019
Thank you for supporting the Triangle Run/Walk for Autism. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
The Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development is dedicated to helping each individual with autism and related developmental disabilities reach his or her full potential, thereby allowing society to benefit from the talents and diversity which persons with autism and other developmental disabilities offer.
We are a group of dedicated clinicians and scientists who work in partnership with people with autism and related disabilities, families, and the broader community to realize this goal.
With the support of Duke University, research grants, and philanthropy, we offer state-of-the-art interdisciplinary clinical care, conduct cutting-edge research that improves lives, inspire and train the next generation of scientists and clinicians, and partner with the community to impact policy and services.
We promote synergies between the clinical and research programs so we can translate scientific discoveries into improved methods for screening, diagnosis, and treatment in the clinic and community.
The Autism Society of North Carolina is the leading statewide resource organization serving people across the autism spectrum throughout their lifespans.
We understand the challenges of the autism community because we work with individuals on the autism spectrum and their families every day. We offer advocacy, training and education, and direct care that helps individuals with autism to, increase their social and communication skills, develop independent-living skills, succeed in school or on the job, participate in community activities, and advocate for themselves.
We have a statewide network of resources, connecting individuals with autism and their families to life-changing programs and supports unavailable anywhere else.
