All children are unique. They have their gifts, talents and other things about them that make them special. They also have their challenges. Their own mountains to climb. Children who have autism are no different. They just have autism.
We understand those challenges and are here to help you.
Our philosophy at MAC is one size does not fit all. We recognize your child for being that uniquely, special person who happens to have autism.
We are here to be your resource. Your confidants. Your partner as you navigate through next steps with your child and with your family.
We are here for you.
