SPECIAL UPDATE: COVID-19
The Alexander County Autism Team applied for and received a grant through the Autistic Education Foundation of Hickory. The grant was used to create sensory boxes for each of the elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Alexander County. These sensory boxes include several sensory items that are beneficial for students across a range of educational settings. The Autism Team's hope is that the various materials will be used throughout the total school environment to aid in meeting the sensory needs of all learners.

The Servant Award is a celebration of the unsung heroes in our communities who support these families and individuals who are affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities. These unsung heroes do not do their job for recognition, this is what makes their dedication, joy, compassion, and humility even more remarkable. Congratulations Amy Pruett!
