Welcome to Families for Effective Autism Treatment of Washington.
FEAT of WA  is a leading Washington state non-profit founded by families for families who have children with autism. Our goal is to provide quality autism programs, services & resources to help families as they navigate their autism journey. FEAT of Washington – helping children with autism reach their full potential.


RftS_Luncheon2014_FINAL_PR_lgPlease join us at our Annual Awards Luncheon where FEAT of Washington recognizes and celebrates the people that are furthering the cause of autism awareness and effective treatment through personal contributions, strong leadership and outstanding commitment.

The event will feature keynote speaker Scott Crain, staff attorney at the Northwest Justice Project.  In 2012 Scott initiated a lawsuit that led the state’s Apple Health and Medicaid programs to start paying for ABA autism therapy, making 9,000 low-income families eligible to receive these services.  We will also be presenting the winners of our community-nominated Reach for the Stars awards.

FEAT proudly announces that Ben’s Fund is now available to accept grant applications!

Established by Traci and John Schneider to honor their son Ben who has autism, Ben’s Fund is now accepting applications from families who have a child on the autism spectrum in Washington who are in need of assistance to reduce the financial stress that families face.  Grants that are awarded may be used for therapy, doctor’s visits, special equipment or other needed services defined in the instructions and application.

We are so grateful for the Schneiders’ leadership and the generosity of all who are joining them to support Ben’s Fund.  We also thank the Seattle Seahawks and the Seahawks Women’s Association for their involvement and support of Prime Time, the annual event that raises funds to make this grant possible.  Collectively, they help us further the FEAT mission, “Providing families with hope and guidance to help their children with autism reach their full potential.”

On behalf of the Schneiders and the whole FEAT family, help us spread the word, so many families may benefit.”
