OASIS NC programs are for children identified with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and PDD-NOS. We love ALL kids on the spectrum, but due to space and funding for staff restrictions, applicants to OASIS NC center based programs must:
1. Communicate verbally
2. Have no aggressive, self-injurious, or destructive behaviors
3. Use the bathroom independently
4. Be able to participate in a small group of 3-4 other students (not 1-on-1)
OASIS NC admits children of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other school-administered programs.
