Understanding autism

Enrolling your child or adolescent into a program that is right for them is critical for their long-term success. Our team of trained health care professionals can assist you in making this significant decision.

Learning if your child has autism is scary. Parents have expressed that they felt overwhelmed too. They have shared with us that they have more questions than answers, they’re not know sure what to do next or who to talk to. All they know is that they want to help their child and make the right decisions for them. We understand that the unknown can be terrifying for you, your child and your family and our team of trained mental health professionals are here for you.

They are able to speak with you about MAC’s programs and services for your child and family or any general concern you may have as you process information about your child and autism. They are knowledgeable about the process for scheduling an assessment to next steps to getting services. And, they can connect you to one of our doctoral level clinicians to answer any clinical questions you may have about autism or the tools we use to screen for it.
