In order to begin Case Management and related services, individuals must meet eligibility through the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs (DDSN). Please call them at 1-800-289-7012. They will ask questions and then process the intake. Applying for Medicaid (see below) may help speed up the intake process. Assuming you are eligible for Case Management, they will give you a list of providers to choose from. Your provider will be your main contact for getting services.

Additional information on DDSN services is available online at

Covid-19 Update!

Dear South Carolina Autism Society Community, it is with an abundance of caution for our staff, their families and the community that we will be closing our Columbia and Greenville physical office locations temporarily. We can still be reached through email, phone and Facebook to answer questions and support you. Our Case Managers will continue to check-in on their caseloads via phone until further guidance is provided.

Stay well!
