Hi, we are moving to the Southern Pines/Pinehurst area in Moore county. Does anyone know anything about special ed. services in the county? I am especially looking for info. about county services, therapists and support groups for autism.
We are also thinking about moving to Fayetteville if Moore county doesn't have what my son needs. any thoughts about Fayetteville?
thanks,
Michele

I'm sorry I can't really help you with the autism aspect of your question, but my parents have been in Fayetteville for nearly 20 years. It is a military town, but there is also a great community outside of Fort Bragg. My mom owns a real estate firm and rental management company, and my dad is a professor at Methodist University (no longer a "college"!), and they are both very active in community events. We go down from Raleigh several times a year for the different festivals and events, and we always really enjoy it.

Good luck with your transition, if I can help, feel free to pm!

I live in fayetteville and have a son with autism. The Autism Society of Cumberland County has alot of useful information. Depending on the age of your child the CDSA (Child Development Services Agency) can help as well. My son is in speech and OT. the hardest thing about services around here are waiting lists. But I havent had to wait too long for services. he is in a special class at school just for autistic children in the public schools here too. im currently in the process of contacting CAP/MR/DD for services so I cant rate that as of yet. but any other questions feel free to email me.
