INDEPENDENCE — Three years ago, Parker Carico was diagnosed with autism and had a vocabulary of five to 10 clear words.
Now — after a team effort between home and school — Parker can speak more than 300 words and use some full sentences.
Parker is a kindergarten student at Independence Elementary.
This past fall, the school system helped implement a program with Dr. Chris Layne, director of the Lake Norman Counseling and Autism Center.
