Now, more than ever, it’s important to have information at your fingertips.

The Autism Society of North Carolina has added podcasts to its efforts to deliver information to individuals and families affected by autism in North Carolina.

“Now, more than ever, it’s important to have information at your fingertips,” said David Laxton, Director of Communications for the Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC). “Being online with portable media that you can hear and share with other families and friends is important to increasing understanding of autism, the issues that are affecting the NC autism community, and how ASNC helps.”

The online interviews are available at https://soundcloud.com/autismsocietync. They also can be accessed by downloading the free SoundCloud app to a mobile device, creating an account, and searching for “AutismSocietyNC.” Listeners can follow ASNC to receive updates and new episodes.

Some of the topics available now include:

  •     Direct-Care Services: What ASNC Offers
  •     Clinical Services: An Overview with Dr. Aleck Myers
  •     Government Relations: We Advocate for You

ASNC plans to add more interviews in coming months. The podcasts build on ASNC’s other digital initiatives, including live webinars facilitated by Autism Resource Specialists.
