Throughout our existence, we have pursued three primary goals:
1) Supporting Parents -
While we work closely with many professionals, our
organization is run by
family members, for family members. CT FEAT
provides unique information and networking opportunities
which empower parents to become more effective advocates for

Discussion Group, subsidized conference and speaker events,
books, parent scholarships, and resource meetings.
Hundreds of parents participate in our listserv and
thousands visit our web site.
Frank D. Craemer Memorial Parent Training Fund we
have awarded thousands of dollars in subsidies to enable
parents to attend educational events. We've also distributed
more than $2,000 worth of free books to parents during our
annual “gift to parents‚" outreach efforts. Our recently

will provide families with funding to purchase books and
other materials enhancing the quality of their child's
Raising Awareness -
CT FEAT supports outreach efforts to educate the public. For
example, we've donated thousands of dollars' worth of
autism-related books to public libraries across the state.
Our newsletters and brochures are distributed throughout the
We've also partnered with the national Learn the Signs, Act
Early campaign sponsored by the federal Center for Disease
Control, and worked with pediatricians and other professionals
to promote timely diagnosis and effective treatment.
Expanding Treatment Resources - CCT
FEAT sponsors conferences and other opportunities for both
parents and professionals to acquire the most current knowledge
about effective autism treatment.
In addition, we have demonstrated a singular commitment to
increasing the number of behavior analysts in our state. We are
in our 5th year of sponsoring the Nancy Leahy Shea Memorial
Educator ABA Scholarship.
The scholarship is applied to the cost of tuition in academic
coursework pertaining to applied behavior analysis (ABA),
thereby improving the preparation of professionals who work with
our children. CT FEAT funding has enabled numerous professionals
to obtain national certification as behavior analysts. To
date, there have been nearly 20 recipients of this
award, with scholarships totaling over $20,000.
We don't charge for any of our services. And we never
accept paid advertisements of any kind in connection with our
activities. Instead, we rely solely on financial support from
private contributions by people like you.
Help us help the families and children that we all care so much
about. Thank you very much for your interest and support!
