Why donate to CT FEAT?
CT FEAT is proud to be celebrating its 20th 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 resources and networking opportunities which empower parents to become more effective advocates for their children.

These free resources include our web site, Online Discussion Group, Facebook Page, and scholarship funding to help parents acquire high quality reliable information. Many hundreds of parents participate in our listserv and thousands visit our web site.
 
2) Raising Awareness - CT FEAT supports outreach efforts to educate the public. We've donated thousands of dollars' worth of autism-related books to public libraries across 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 - CT FEAT supports opportunities for both parents and professionals to acquire the most current knowledge about effective autism treatment.

By funding the Craemer Shea Memorial Professional Scholarship we have demonstrated a singular commitment to increasing the number of well-trained autism professionals. Now in its 10th year, the scholarship pays for tuition in academic coursework pertaining to applied behavior analysis (ABA). As of January 2018, total expenditures have exceeded $80,000, distributed to 41 scholarship recipients.

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!
