What is Autism?

Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a “spectrum disorder” that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. (www.autismsociety.org)

Does my child/teen need to be diagnosed with autism to access your services?

Yes. We are specifically structured to meet the social and communication needs typical of students with autism.

What are the enrollment requirements?
  1. Student is able to participate in a small group setting.
  2. Student cannot demonstrate verbally or physically aggressive behavior.
  3. Student is able to communicate basic wants and needs.
  4. Student is able to use the bathroom independently.

While these are our primary components of our enrollment requirements, final decisions are made after consultation appointments.

Do you provide one-on-one services?

Not typically.  While at times we do work with students individually, our goal is for our students to participate in a small group.

Are you a daycare?

OASIS NC is a support and educational center, not a day care.  Our programs were created to teach social, academic, behavioral, and communication skills.

What are the goals of OASIS NC services?

We want to offer ongoing experiences for children and teens with autism that will enrich their lives through making friends, exploring and developing a variety of interests, and learning and using strategies that promote positive communication and social interactions.  We are a family-focused organization and we understand the impact autism can have on the entire family (siblings, spouses, grandparents, etc.).  We base our service delivery on this understanding.

What is the success rate for students/individuals who attend OASIS NC?

Children and individuals benefit from ongoing, consistent instruction, support, and accommodations throughout their lifespan.  Each program and each individual comes with a variety of goals and, therefore, a variety of definitions of success. If your child/teen receives services from OASIS NC, progress on his/her goals will be made readily available to you.

What is the range in age of students who attend the school?

We provide services for students 5-21 years old.  As we expand, we look forward to providing services to adults with autism as well.

What is the cost to attend?
