SC LEADS Program

"The attitude and self-advocacy skills of students with disabilities may be two of the most important factors in determining their success or failure in postsecondary education."

-- US Department of Education


The South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association is so excited to announce our NEW program, thanks to a generous grant from South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation.  SC LEADS will begin in the middle schools of the Midlands and surrounding counties in January 2019.  Our goal is to help eighth graders with disabilities develop their self-advocacy skills in an effort to make them more successful in their transition to high school and beyond.  We will be working within middle schools to teach once a month 45 minute class sessions centered on disability awareness, self awareness & determination, listening & communication skills, leadership skills, and so much more.  If you are interested in participating, or know a school you'd like to see our program in, please contact Sarah Brownson, Program Manager for more information by emailing sarah [at] or calling 803-252-2198.
