Our Story

Families for Effective Autism Treatment-North Texas (FEAT-NT) is a 501 c 3 non-profit operated by volunteer parents of children with autism who know first-hand the daily struggles of life with autism.

Over 19 years ago, a group of Dallas Fort Worth volunteer parents came together to form an organization that would help them discover the answers they needed to help their children and families through their autism journey. As the years went by, the numbers of autism diagnoses increased, and so did the FEAT-NT family of friends and professionals.  What started out as monthly meetings and a small group of parents grew into FEAT-NT’s mission to educate the outside local community about autism and effective autism intervention. Our goal to educate, support , and provide effective teaching principles will help individuals with autism to live fuller lives and reach greater potential than ever imagined.

Over time, FEAT-NT educational opportunities and conferences have educated and provided support to over 25,000 parents and professionals. Eventually, FEAT-NT embarked on a mission to open the very first autism resource center & library of its kind in North Texas, The FEAT-NT Resource Center & Library.
