Welcome to the Minnesota Autism Center
The Minnesota Autism Center (MAC) provides therapeutic support for children, youth and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). MAC is staffed by highly trained professionals who provide Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy on an individualized basis with the goal of reducing and eliminating the signs and symptoms of autism in children and youth. For over 16 years, MAC has been committed to providing the highest quality of structured behavioral intervention with the goal of reducing future supplementary support.
The Minnesota Autism Center was founded by parents of children with autism, due in part to the institutional and social discrimination faced by children diagnosed with ASD. MAC recognized that those diagnosed with autism are people first and autism is only part of who they are. Therefore, in addition to one-on-one individualized therapy and instruction with the child or youth, MAC recognizes the importance of family education and provides family training to promote family unity.
MAC currently services children and youth ages 2 to 21 throughout the state of Minnesota through a variety of programs. These programs are tailored to meet the individualized needs of each child or youth and their families.
The Minnesota Autism Center's Mission is to promote and provide home, school and center-based behavioral and academic services for children and youth affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders.
The Minnesota Autism Center promotes the general education and welfare of persons challenged by Autism Spectrum Disorders and supports the development of healthy families.
