Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh are in the nation's top 20 cities with autism prevalence. Nationally, 1 in 59 children has autism according to the newly released report by the CDC's Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network

autismAutism is a lifelong, complex spectrum of neurobiological developmental disorders. It affects how the brain processes information and learns. The social and communication challenges that individuals with autism experience can make it difficult for them to speak and make friends. 

While autism has no defined cause and no known cure, there is help and hope. With early diagnosis, intervention, consistent behavioral techniques, and caring support, children and adults with autism can be successful at school, home, work, and in the community.
