I have a 10 year old son who was diagnosed 8 years ago. One thing I have learned is that all autistic children are not alike. Therapy is the best thing for them. I live in KY and am not sure what support groups are available in your state (NC?). If you want a local support group I would suggest asking your son's therapists or special ed teachers. Before my son was diagnosed I don't think I new anyone with autism and now it seems like I know a lot of children with autism. There is a lot out there, but getting through each day and trying to figure out what will work for your child and what will not work can be exhausting.

I have a teen autistic son. I recommend the yahoo group called reversingautism. I hope you join. The information I have received there has helped me more than anywhere else.
