North Carolina Autism Society: looking for longer-term volunteers to assist in the following areas:

-Structure creation (related to skill building, communication of needs and wants, tasks)
-Communication systems creation and updates (iPad Apps, PECs, sign language information)
-Sensory task creation

Volunteers helping with these tasks would be developing more effective methods of education for autistic students. The NC Autism’s Society is in Cary, but we may be able to work out some means of working remotely. The NC Autism Society will also most likely need assistance with clerical tasks.
