Therapeutic Services

ABC of NC offers a variety of counseling and psychotherapy treatment services for children and adolescents diagnosed with ASD and/or their family members (e.g. parents or siblings). Evidence-based approaches vary and may include cognitive behavioral therapy, behavioral modification, collaborative problem-solving, applied behavior analysis, parent education and support, and more. Our team provides a comprehensive understanding of individuals diagnosed with ASD and any co-occurring conditions such as developmental delay, intellectual disability, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and/or behavioral disorders. We emphasize treatment and support to reduce challenging behavior; build social, communication, and play skills; improve interactions and adaptive skills; and manage emotional/attentional concerns. ASD impacts the entire family, and we are committed to providing resources and services to support the parents/caregivers and siblings of individuals diagnosed with ASD.

Clinical Staff

Hannah Prevatt (MS, Ed. S, LCMHC, NCC) joined ABC of NC as a counselor for children, adolescents, adults, and families, with a background in family counseling. Having earned her Master’s in counseling at UNCG, she spent several years at the Tim and Carolynn Rice Center for Child and Adolescent Health, where her passion for supporting families grew. With empathy, support and understanding, she collaborates with clients and their families in a way that best suits that family. She is passionate about counseling’s emphasis on wellness and is excited about applying that at ABC of NC. She approaches each relationship with genuine curiosity as to who the client is, what their needs are, and what can be done to best serve that client. In her spare time, Hannah enjoys rock climbing, reading, and playing games with her husband.

NC HealthConnex

The US health care system is experiencing a technological transformation. With the changes in value-based care reimbursement models, sharing data will be imperative. That is why we will work to connect our electronic medical record system with North Carolina’s state-designated health information exchange, NC HealthConnex, which is operated by the North Carolina Health Information Exchange Authority (NC HIEA) housed in the North Carolina Department of Information Technology. For employees and clinicians who have direct contact with patients, we will provide additional training and resources to help educate patients about NC HealthConnex and how to use this new tool. There will be more information on those opportunities to come. The process can take several months depending on the technical configuration requirements. During that time, we will keep you apprised of the status of this project. If you have any questions, contact the clinical practice manager Darlene Steele at (336) 251-1180, ext. 135. A full description of NC HealthConnex is also available here.
