Since 2008, we have assisted over 800 families in the lower coastal region of South Carolina through our high quality Autism Support Services.  

Our Mission

Our goals are to promote optimal developmental outcomes through awareness of autism. We stress the importance of attaining the earliest possible screening, diagnostics and intervention of children from ages zero to 6. We serve all children, adults, and families facing the challenges of living with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities.

The Lowcountry Autism Foundation’s policy is to provide support and promote evidence–based treatment and intervention strategies, commonly used in mainstream practice. 

Since the Lowcountry Autism Foundation does not charge for the high quality autism services it provides, families are asked to support LAF in the community, help with awareness and when possible, assist with LAF events.



Around 1 in 68 American children are on the autism spectrum- a ten fold increase in prevalence in the last 40 years.

The Future

LAF provides diagnostic assessments for children ages 18 months and older. The sooner a child is diagnosed with autism and provided intense therapeutic intervention, the better the child’s life will become. With your help and financial support, we are able to continue to help families get timely assessments and begin treatment options to support the best possible life for the child and their family.
