We had a really successful event this week, and I’m really pleased with the updated resource list. I was happy to see so many autism professionals getting to know each other and exchanging contact info.

In creating this list, I was really struck by a couple of things.
1. There are so many local resources! and so many specialists! This means the era of one person being “The Person” for autism in our area is over–which is great! We need options and specialties.
2. Look at all the recreation options! There might not be something for everyone, or something that is perfectly tailored for each child, but we are doing SO MUCH better than we were doing even two years ago.
NICE WORK ASHEVILLE
Empower Autism is hosting a lunchtime networking event at the Family Support Network! We are excited to welcome members of the professional community to this casual drop-in event. We plan to provide light food, lots of introductions, and a follow-up contact list for the people who attended. If you’re interested in stopping by, please RSVP to Sylvia via email: email@example.com
