Students With Autism Thrive At Cumberland Academy Of Georgia

Apr 18, 2018

April is National Autism Awareness Month. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that one in 68 children in the United States is on the autism spectrum.


As a toddler, Steven Scarborough was diagnosed with what previously was called Asperger's syndrome. It's now known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). 

After her son's diagnosis, Debbi Scarborough co-founded the Cumberland Academy of Georgia, a school for children with ASD.
