University Autism Outreach

Currently Inactive Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.......Return soon for current update.

A unique program that provides support to children with autism by engaging college interns to support them in their homes and communities...

Our area is privileged to have several regionally and nationally recognized higher-level academic institutions, with undergraduate and advance degree programs in special education, psychology, and other fields of study relevant to the world of autism. We work with nine area institutions including Davidson College, Queens University of Charlotte, UNC Charlotte, Wingate, Winthrop, Johnson C. Smith, Central Piedmont Community College, Columbia College, and University of South Carolina to recruit, train, and provide supervised internship experiences for students desiring a career in the autism field.


Interns are recruited, trained, and supervised by Autism Charlotte staff as they provide one-on-one support to children with autism in their homes and communities.
