North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has issued an Executive Order for the closure of all public K-12 schools in North Carolina through May 15. To be consistent with Governor Cooper’s order, ABC of NC’s nonpublic school is closed through May 15. Program supervisors will be available by phone to support school families during this time.

In addition, all ABC of NC services will transition to in-home, telehealth, and distance learning models. We hope that the more we do now to limit contact, the shorter the duration needed for these modified services.

Imprints Cares will not provide day care services at ABC of NC until further notice.

We will continue to monitor the guidelines and protocols set forth by the Forsyth County Department of Public Health and provide updates as appropriate.

For more information, visit our Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update webpage.

Today we honor autism self-advocate Dr. Temple Grandin.

Dr. Grandin was diagnosed with autism at age 3 at which time her parents were told that her future was very bleak. A professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University, Dr. Grandin has had a successful career consulting on livestock handling equipment design, and is a prominent author and speaker on both autism and animal behavior.

Different? Perhaps. Less? Never.

At ABC of NC, we celebrate the many contributions individuals with autism make to our world — today and every day.

While autism was once considered a condition that occurred mainly among whites of high socioeconomic status, emerging research suggests that over the past two decades, the prevalence of autism has fallen among wealthy and white populations yet risen in low-income families and persons of color.

Experts believe better screening and diagnosis of low-income populations along with environmental factors (e.g. emotional stress, environmental toxins, etc.) play a role in the demographic change. With autism affecting one in 54 children, there’s an urgent need to understand what makes low-income families especially vulnerable, and intervene accordingly.

Since its founding, ABC of NC has been committed to serving families from any economic background. With financial aid available for school services and diagnostic and therapeutic services funded by Medicaid, children and families from ALL economic backgrounds can access critical diagnostic, therapeutic, and educational services that can change lives — today and every day.
