Information and resources are the cornerstone of our organization’s mission. SCAS aims to help provide accurate and timely information to families and professionals about autism spectrum disorders and services that are available throughout the state. We have dedicated staff to assist families in understanding ASD.
SCAS provides an informational booklet to families, which includes important information and resources. Our information and referral specialist will guide the family throughout the entire process including finding information about various treatment options.
SCAS also publishes an electronic newsletter to keep people informed on ASD topics in South Carolina
Each spring, SCAS holds our Annual Conference in April during Autism Awareness Month. We bring in national experts and local educational programs. SCAS also hosts a variety of workshops throughout the year. Both the conference and the workshops are designed to help people learn about the best practices in the area of autism.
The autism community faces extraordinary challenges during the COVID-19 crisis. We are proud to share this toolkit from Autism Society of America, which provides COVID-19 information and resources by topic, including Mental Health & Respite, Modifying Routines, Lifestyle Supports, and much more.
We are actively building connections with businesses, schools, government and churches to provide resources to families in need across South Carolina. If you need help in your home or would like to help, please contact us! We cannot wait to hear from you!
