After the Storm
Many of our communities have headed home and are now starting the process of recovery. For many, this is not the first time they have been impacted by rising waters. Special needs children are especially vulnerable and require extra care to avoid behavior difficulties or skill regression. SCASP understands that the recovery process will be lengthy, requiring substantial community collaboration.
Tools and guides have been added to the website to help start the recovery efforts by connecting those in need with information that can help them restore their lives.

Continuing Education related to Domestic Violence
On January 29, 2015, Governor Nikki Haley established the Domestic Violence Task Force through Executive Order 2015-04. The Task Force was charged with tackling the cultural issues surrounding domestic violence in the State of South Carolina. One of the specific areas targeted was education for licensed professionals in the state of South Carolina. We’ve learned that most of our licensees don’t get training regarding domestic violence and those that do aren’t aware of the resources available to their patients who are in need of help.
