Family & Friends Night
Once a 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. 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 will be held on Tuesday, April 24 from 6-7:30PM .
Our guest speaker for this month will be Carol Page, PhD, CCC-SLP, ATP, CBIS. Carol is the Program Manager for the SC Assistive Technology Program at USC School of Medicine.
All SC Assistive Technology services are free. We provide demonstrations of software, apps, and devices that help people of all ages be more independent. We also loan our equipment, including communication devices and iPads, so that a good fit can be determined prior to purchase. We also offer trainings. We provide staff and parent trainings on augmentative and alternative communication, learning disability tools, and more.
