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, June 26 from 6-7:30pm. 

This event is open to AASC families as well as the public!! We look forward to seeing you there!

We will be joined by Jordan O’Keefe, Therapeutic Recreation Director at Irmo Chapin Recreation Commission.

Jordan has worked for the Commission for 8 years and organizes district-wide camps, afterschool care, respite events, adult education, athletics, theatre, and special events for people with special needs.  Out of all the TR programs Jordan plans, Murder Mysteries are her favorite event of the year!
