FMFEAT is a group of parents of children with autism who have organized (based on the FEAT model). For our PRINCIPALS, GOALS & OBJECTIVES click here, our bylaws click here.
We are a non-profit corporation, and this website is still under construction.
Clinical research has shown that early intensive therapy can substantially improve the prognosis for children with autism (See Nat'l Academy Press, Educating Children with Autism (2001)).
In this type of program, compensation is made for learning deficits, and behaviors are reduced which interfere with learning. The results can be profound. Children with autism who have ritualistic or self-injurious behaviors reduce or eliminate these behaviors. They establish eye contact. They learn to stay on task. Finally the children acquire the ability and the desire to learn and to do well.
