What We Do
Let's Talk About It...The Autism Center, Inc. was established to help people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their caregivers to maximize their opportunities and life experiences. We offer IEP support, advocacy, behavioral interventions, sensory management support, and corporate training to promote inclusion of people with ASD into their organizations. We facilitate workshops and support groups as we strive to build a sense of community among our caregivers and their loved ones with ASD. Let's Talk About It...The Autism Center, Inc. is comprised of mental health professionals, educators, business and financial professionals, and law enforcement professionals that work collaboratively to apply our collective knowledge and experiences with our clients to find the best solutions for the growth and development of people with ASD and assist their caregivers as they navigate their respective journeys. Recognizing that every journey is personal, we started a podcast, "Autism In Color," to give caregivers an opportunity to share their challenges and triumphs. Our listening audience is international and intercontinental across numerous podcast formats.
- We have received awards from three organizations, including Mecklenburg County, for community education, community organization, and advocacy.
- For Autism Awareness Month, we held an Autism Awareness bowling event. This was the first of what will be an annual event.
- In May 2022, we started a caregiver support group, called, "Autism Optimist Support Circle". Over 50 people have signed up to participate.
