The Association For Metro Area Autistic Children
- Since 1961, The Association for Metro Area Autistic Children AMAC has provided a range of services for people of all ages with autistic-spectrum disorders, and for their families.
- AMAC uses the Applied Behavior Analysis method, the only scientifically-based and state-approved treatment of autistic-spectrum disorders.
- ABA relies on intensive behavioral intervention to teach targeted skills and behaviors, and has been proven to provide significant improvement in the lives of people with autistic and autistic-spectrum disorders.
- AMAC serves the entire Metro New York area. Our school program is designed to serve autistic, Asperger's and emotionally disturbed children 5-21 years of age with year round targeted educational programming.
- These are students who are unable to function successfully in public or standard school settings.
- Speech, occupational/physical therapy, art, music, counseling and parent training are provided in addition to academic education.
- The goal is the integration of children into mainstream education.
- AMAC's accent on rigorous data collection provides accountability and feedback for parents and staff.
- With the completion of our expansion, we are offering the only high school diploma program specifically for autistic teenagers in the Metro NY area.
