Where Nothing is Impossible

The Minnesota Autism Center (MAC) provides therapeutic support for children, adolescents and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders, or ASD. Our MAC therapy team consists of highly trained professionals who work to reduce and eliminate the signs and symptoms of autism through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. MAC’s therapy programming is based on data-driven research, is scientifically supported and is structured to meet the specific academic, behavioral, social and adaptive needs outlined in your child or young adult’s Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP).

For nearly 20 years, MAC has been committed to providing the highest quality of structured behavioral intervention available and is now the largest premiere provider of autism treatment services in the Upper Midwest. MAC offers a variety of home, school, and center based programs and support groups that promote the general welfare of persons challenged by ASD and support the development of healthy families.
