MISSION & HISTORY
FEAT provides families with hope and guidance to help their children with autism reach their full potential.
The need for services is great; the Centers for Disease Control, CDC, estimates the current prevalence rate for autism is 1 in 68. The factors – environmental, biologic, and genetic – that may contribute to the likelihood of having an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are being studied. To date, there is no cure for ASDs, but the research does show early intervention treatment services can greatly improve a child’s development. http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/data.html
FEAT has flourished since it was conceived in 1996 by five pioneering families who shared a need. Today, nearly 3,000 members – clients, families, therapists, other health-related professionals, business partners, and friends – comprise our large caring community.
