About The Faison Center

Welcome to The Faison Center

The Faison Center gives children and adults with autism and related challenges the best opportunity to live rich and fulfilling lives. Autism affects more children than childhood cancers, cystic fibrosis and multiple sclerosis combined. The Faison Center’s unique lifespan model provides Central Virginia with its primary source of world class services for those with autism and their families. From early intervention to adult care, we are committed to improving the lives of the individuals we serve.
