SCAS Monthly Newsletter
Below is the latest edition of the South Carolina Autism Society's monthly newsletter.
Wow! It has been a busy month already at the South Carolina Autism Society!
We kicked off April with Upstate Strides for Autism at Heritage Park in Simpsonville. Those who attended enjoyed a beautiful morning of fun activities, learning about various autism resources, and connecting with others in the autism community. Thank you to everyone who came and all who volunteered, especially the AT&T Pioneers, Cub Scout Pack 527, and students from Bob Jones University. Last Friday, we had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Jed Baker talk about preparing for the future and social skills at our Annual Conference. There was a great turnout, including caregivers, educators, professionals, and self-advocates. Thank you also to all the wonderful breakout session presenters who shared their expertise with our conference attendees! Not to slow down, on Saturday we partnered with several other organizations to bring Wings for Autism to the Columbia Airport. Wings is a flight-rehearsal program designed to help individuals with autism become accustomed to the airport and flight experience. Seeing the participants' reactions as they came of the plane proved that it was a successful and exciting experience for all who attended. But Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month is not over yet! We still have lots of great ways for you to get involved. Consider participating in our Midlands Strides for Autism on May 2nd, or one of our other many opportunities mentioned in this newsletter. Please contact us if you have questions, need assistance, or would like to get further involved. Our main number is 803-750-6988, or visit our website at scautism.org.
