Company Description
Imagine how you would feel if you realized that your child is not developing normally. Imagine how frustrating and confusing it is to discover that the help and services you most desperately need for your child is not available. And, when the services are available there is a one, two, and in some cases, five year waiting list. No parent should have to go through this! No child should be denied access to the services that they need immediately. This was the beginning of New York Families for Autistic Children, or NYFAC.

Five families got together and vowed to support, educate, and assist each other get through the tough times, paperwork, and seemingly endless journey on the road to accessing help for their child.

On July 2nd, 1998 these five families decided to open the doors to others and provide them with the information they had learned. Within one year NYFAC grew to over 100 families. Currently NYFAC serves any family, within the state of New York, that has a child with a developmental disability. Our doors are open to any family member or friend who needs these services. Our doors are also open to professionals, or students who wants to learn how to deal with children who have special needs.

Since its inception, NYFAC has developed and instituted a wide variety of programs and services. NYFAC is recognized as a worldwide leader in the development of training materials for professionals working with children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

NYFAC's motto and mission is simple: Helping Parents ...Help their Children ...One family at a time.
