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 will be held on Tuesday, October 23 from 6-7:30pm at the Autism Academy of SC.

Casi Sims will be our guest speaker for the first half of the speaker portion of the night. Casi Sims is the Equipment and Outreach Coordinator for the South Carolina Equipment Distribution Program. She has been with the program for a little over a year. Casi travels around the state of SC to speak about the program as well as exhibit at events to promote SCEDP. She is so excited to share some information with you and hopes that you will find it to be a great resource.

As of now; the remainder of the evening will be a time for parents/caregivers to have a chance to speak with one another!


This event is open to AASC families as well as the public!! We look forward to seeing you there! Please make sure to RSVP for Childcare. The deadline for childcare reservation is October 16.
