Our family has been impacted by Autism, and rather than focus on the challenges we have had we want to recognize those that have helped us through those challenges. In addition to the wonderful support from the Autism Society, we have found that Jennifer Van Lue from the Aspire Center for Personal Growth is a wonderful advocate for individuals on the spectrum. She has a wealth of knowledge in terms of tools she uses including EMDR, cognitive-behavioral therapy, relaxation techiques, planning techniques, and coping with challenging emotions. She is reliable, experienced and devoted to those she serves. Thank you Jennifer! Please join TEAM ASPIRE to recognize this amazing professional while supporting the Autism Society.
Thank you for supporting the WNC Run/Walk for Autism. Your contribution is greatly appreciated! Hope you will come walk with us on September 14th!
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.
