There are numerous factors that must be weighed to find the best situation for a child with autism. Some of these factors include the support of extended family, employment, education, access to healthcare, recreational oppor- tunities, support, services, community acceptance, and quality of life. These things can vary considerably from one child care center to the next, and it is important to realize that there is no one “perfect” child care center. The best community in North Carolina for your family will depend on your specific situation, as well as the particular needs of your loved one with ASD.
