Why Can’t I Simply Receive Services From My Local School District?

School districts do the best that they can with the limited resources and expertise that they can afford.  For many, the convenience of the local school district drives a family dealing with autism to that service option.  Other families seek a more intense and individualized treatment plan like that offered at MAC.  Ask yourself, if my child had cancer, would I go my local pediatrician for treatment or would I seek out the most qualified pediatric oncologist I could find to give my child their best chance at an optimal outcome.  Autism is no different.  Working with a highly-skilled team of professionals that are trained in autism treatment like those at MAC is the choice for many families who want the best results for their child.
