Why donate to CT FEAT?
CT FEAT is proud to be celebrating its 15th anniversary this year! 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 their children.

These free resources include our web site, Internet 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.


Through our
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 created Myrna Chernock Memorial Educational Materials Fund will provide families with funding to purchase books and other materials enhancing the quality of their child's treatment.
 
2) 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 state.

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.
 
3) 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!
