Severe Weather Update

Date: September 9, 2017

To all our Parents,

As Irma approaches, we’re thinking of you and your families and we’re here to support you, whether through a community initiative and volunteer work or arranging clinic and therapist support to help you get things done.

As the potential for more severe weather events increases during the fall and the arrival of Irma is imminent we want to remind you of or introduce you to our emergency and weather policies and programs. If you are in or evacuating to a city we support, we can and will be ready to help.

Closures and Cancellations

Our clinics generally follow school closures for severe weather events. Once the event passes and we can access our facilities safely, we will be open even if schools remain closed. Of course, if you cannot reach our facility safely we will be happy to coordinate to get to you.

Evacuation or Relocation

If you are evacuated from Florida or Georgia to South Carolina, or leaving South Carolina for other areas, we may be able to assist you and provide support in cities where we have clinics (Rock Hill, Columbia, Greenville, Anderson, Spartanburg, Florence, Sumter) until you get the all clear to return home. Please contact us at westcolumbia@earlyautismproject.com to let us know and we will take care of the rest. Even if we do not operate in an area you are evacuating to, please contact us when it is safe to do so and let us know you’re ok. We’ll coordinate to restart services when you get the all clear to come back.

If you experience any difficulties please let us know; we want to help. Contact your local Clinic Director or email westcolumbia@earlyautismproject.com

We’re standing with you as we face Irma and the active weather season. Please be safe and maybe, if you can manage it, please consider the therapy book part of your “important papers” in your planning.  For information on our locations and important contact information please visit earlyautismproject.com

Here to support our families,

Christie Penland, VP of Operations
