FACES (NC State)
Thank you for supporting the Triangle Run/Walk for Autism. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
FACES (Fostering Advocacy, Communication, Empowerment, and Support) is a face-to-face parent training and advocacy program designed to support traditionally underrepresented families of children with autism.
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.
