Adult Psychoeducational Sessions

These individualized sessions provide an opportunity for an adult with a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder to discuss matters of personal importance such as relationships with others or work. The sessions are short-term (8 to 12 sessions) and goal-directed. This service is useful for independent adults who are motivated to discuss and work on goals for themselves. With the adults consent, family members, community support providers and other advocates may be included in some sessions.

Our clinical services are provided as part of the UNC Health Care system’s UNC Faculty Physicians group. We currently accept the same insurance providers as UNC Health Care. For a complete list please follow the link provided  https://www.uncmedicalcenter.org/uncmc/patients-visitors/billing/insurance-accepted/.

Intensive Need Sessions

Some individuals with autism have intensive needs that require services above and beyond standard TEACCH sessions. Clients receiving these sessions typically have significant behavioral or emotional difficulties and have limited options for receiving services from other providers in their communities. TEACCH services may be available to provide more intensive and/or ongoing service to a limited number of clients. Typically, these sessions involve working with family members or community service providers to help them in providing direct services to an individual with autism around a variety of issues. The ability to provide longer-term services is based on client need and staff availability.

Adult Support Group

Our Adult Support Group is for adults (at least 18 years of age) who are high school graduates and have a diagnosis of High-Functioning Autism or Asperger Syndrome. Group members are living at home or living independently, and some are attending college and/or employed in the community. Support comes from meeting to discuss issues that affect life with others who have had similar experiences in school, at work or at home. There is a focus topic for each meeting. The agenda is created from the expressed interest of group members. The schedule for each meeting includes topics of interest, conversations, special activities and presentations. There is no fee for adults with autism to attend this group.
