Evidence suggests that the prevalence rate in North Carolina is even higher than the national average, at 1 in 58. ASD is more common thanchildhood cancer, cystic fibrosis, and multiple sclerosis combined. Join Richie’s Alliance for Autism on April 10, 2018, for a community-wide fundraising event that brings together consumers to help raise funds and awareness for ASD.
