BFAST has officially launched! BFAST is a new website designed for Black families, created in partnership with members of the Black Community, to help parents of autistic children access resources across NC. The website includes families sharing their stories through videos and interactive tools, with a focus on what to expect along the journey, how to build a team, and ways to feel empowered.
