Who Are We

Families for Effective Autism Treatment of CNY (FEAT CNY) is a not-for-profit organization of parents and professionals founded to support families of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). We are made up of an all-volunteer Board of Directors and Board of Advisors. All financial and time contributions are used to provide training, program, and support opportunities for families in the greater Syracuse area. We are fully committed to collaborating with schools, agencies and individuals to provide the most effective services.


The mission of FEAT of CNY is to provide families dealing with Autism Spectrum Disorders the support and information to: Foster hope, Build Dreams and Create Promise for a bright future.

We must challenge our children to be confident and strong. We must challenge the world to see them this way. We must challenge the world to see them as we do: Beautiful, Capable, and Lovable.
