Carolina Autism Resource and Evaluation Center (CARE)

The CARE Center was established to diagnose, assess, and plan for services for people with autism in order to meet the needs of families of children with autism and professionals who work with them. The CARE Center is staffed with a multidisciplinary team of autistic diagnostic and treatment professionals. All of our services are provided free of charge.

Autism Evaluation: The CARE Center provides diagnostic evaluations for children ages 18 months to 18 years who are suspected of having autism characteristics. We typically complete the evaluations in one day and provide the family with a diagnosis, written treatment recommendations, and take time to explain our evaluation results and answer all of their questions.

Home Intervention: We provide in-home intervention services for children up to age 6 years old who are diagnosed with autism. These services include identifying curriculum goals, training parents and therapists about the best ways to teach their child, and monitoring the child's progress.

Training: CARE Center staff are involved in training parents and professionals in our intervention programs. We also train medical residents, speech-language pathologists, and school psychologists who are interested in learning more about diagnosing autism. Finally, we are often invited to present lectures to parent support groups and other agencies.
