If you believe a family member has an intellectual disability or a related disability such as autism, please call the intake and referral line toll-free at 1-800-289-7012. If a head injury or spinal cord injury is suspected the consumer or the family member can contact 1-866-867-3864. This toll-free line is staffed during normal business hours; however messages can be left at any time with calls returned in the next two business days. Once they make the referral they will be given a choice of an intake provider, for which MaxAbilities is an intake provider. If the applicant meets screening criteria, he/she will be provided with a list of available case management or early intervention (CM/EI) providers. The family also has the option of contacting MaxAbilities directly at 803-628-5999 to assist with the intake process from the beginning.
