For Families

Parents and families of children with autism can feel alone and uncertain of what the future holds. The Faison Center is here to provide you with a sense of community among staff and other parents who understand the difficulties you are facing, and to support you with a comprehensive range of lifespan services for children and adults of different abilities.


"I cannot count the number of times that families have said to me, 'When we found Faison we found hope.' For those families, hope gives a welcome peace of mind. But The Faison Center provides much more than hope, we provide results. Toddlers who came to us unable to speak, can now tell their parents they love them. Students who could not be educated in the public schools are being provided an education that allows them to achieve their personal goals. Adults who have lived at home all of their lives are now able to live their own lives and reach a level of independence they and their families never thought possible."
