The Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC) has a parent advocate to help families in every NC County. Because they are a parent of a child with autism, the ASNC parent advocate has first-hand knowledge of autism and is an understanding and supportive person to talk with about your autism concerns. Because they are a trained and experienced advocate, the ASNC parent advocate can assist you with a variety of autism questions and concerns including:
- Connection to autism resources through information and referral
- Education and training to help you become your child’s best advocate
- Guidance in navigating the worlds of early intervention, school, community and adult services
- Connections to parents and families in your community through ASNC chapters /support groups
In the words of one of our parent advocates, “We are a support person, counselor, problem solver, question answerer, resource finder and educator all rolled into one”
Please do not hesitate to call us with your questions and concerns.
To find the ASNC parent advocate in your area, please call our toll free number 1-800-442-2762 or visit the ASNC website at www.autismsociety-nc.org.
