South Carolina Autism Society September Newsletter
From The President
One of the most common questions we hear in our office is, "I wish you had that in OUR area!" We are listening!
Many of our families cannot get to Columbia to attend the valuable workshops we offer. So we want to bring them to you! Please complete our Workshop Interest Survey by clicking here. This will help us plan which workshops are of the most interest to which areas.
In October, we are partnering with the LUCAS Network and Project Hope Foundation to present the Upstate Autism Forum. With workshops ranging from Autism 101 to Parent Tools, and state experts to discuss ABA coverage, this will be a great learning opportunity for families, self-advocates, and providers.
We are expanding our annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive to cover all of South Carolina. In 2008, we partnered with the LUCAS Network in the Upstate to help provide holiday assistance to autism families in need. As the need has grown, so has the program.
But we need your support to continue expanding these opportunities to reach all of South Carolina. Please consider participating in The Big Give for Autism on September 17th. Your donations will stay right here in South Carolina.
Finally, for you pizza lovers out there, grab your Domino's Slice the Price cards for just $10 and get great BOGO offers through next summer! Half the purchase price will support the SC Autism society!

As always, 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
