North Carolina Licensed Home Inspector, Edgar M. Roberts, Jr., in conjunction with National Autism Awareness Month, is holding the 2nd annual Inspecting for Autism fundraiser. Inspecting for Autism is designed to recognize local preschool programs dedicated to providing individualized treatment for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
During the month of April, Roberts will donate a portion of proceeds from each home inspection performed through his home inspection service, Altamont Inspections, LLC, to Helping Hand Developmental Center, Inc. East Flat Rock, NC.
Helping Hand Developmental Center, Inc. is a private, nonprofit, 5-star rated preschool program providing individualized services such as speech, occupational and physical therapies for children in Henderson County who are physically, emotionally and educationally challenged, including those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

It is the second most common developmental disability following Mental Retardation and is more common than childhood cancer, Cystic Fibrosis and Muscular Sclerosis combined. It is estimated that up to 1 out of every 150 children born today has some form of ASD.
