Christine Lange's 5k
My name is Christine Lange, and my son has high-functioning autism. When he was a child, we weren’t sure if we would ever hear him talk. He had all the signs of classic autism. With a great deal of support from the resources in the community as well as close family and friends, he started to become more interested in what was going on around him. By 4 years old, he started putting words together. I went to a lot of parent support meetings offered through The Autism Society in Wake and Franklin counties, which helped me learn about Autism and reassured me that we weren’t the only family going through the struggles that come with it. He is 19 years old now and has grown into a handsome young man with a lot of potential. Thank you very much for donating to The Autism Society, so it can continue to provide support to parents and those with Autism in the community.

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.
