Family & Friends Night

Every other month, the Autism Academy of South Carolina hosts “Family & Friends Night,” which is a free gathering for whole families experiencing an autism diagnosis. The gathering begins with a family-style meal from 6:00 to 6:30, followed by a breakout into groups (parents/kids) to share stories, play games, gather resources, and hear speakers in the Autism community. The evening will conclude at 7:45. Childcare is provided with advance RSVP.  Family & Friends Night is not limited to Autism Academy families and is open to families from Richland, Lexington, and surrounding counties.

Our upcoming Family & Friends Night is Tuesday, February 26th from 6-7:45pm at the Autism Academy of SC. 
Our upcoming speaker will be Janet Altman from South Carolina Respite Coalition.
