Hi..there is a Mom (autimom4ever)who recently relocated to York County (over the border in SC) that has a child with autism. I realize you are in a NC but perhaps you can email her & get some perspective on how she is going about getting the services needed in a new area.
If you go over to city-data SC York/Lancaster you can find her posts or just do a search.
Good Luck!

At one time Garr Christian Academy, Wallace Road, in Charlotte North Carolina had started a program for students who were diagnosed with Autism, at least I think I am correct. You could look up their homepage on the internet and I am sure it would tell you. The school formed from the church, but the school is a non-denominational school. I could go on and on about everyone there and what a nurturing enviroment it is, since my children attended the school for their lower elementary education, but the information you need is more specialized. I would suggest you start with the website and then contact the school, even if they are not the place that can help you, I am sure someone there can point you in the right direction. Good Luck.

I do not have any information, but as the parent of an adult child with autism I know how difficult it can be to find the right placement. I wish you all the best.

I'm not an expert here - but the woman I'm dating is a tutor for autistic kids and is affiliated with ABA. I know that Garr Christian Academy is, indeed, one of the best for kids with autism in the area ... but the tuition reflects that excellence. Here is the link Garr Autism NOW Home . I'm sure there are other options, but that is one that I am aware of.

Good luck!
