FEAT-Houston is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Our mission is to improve the quality of life of those affected by developmental disabilities by increasing resources and providing information about Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We sponsor workshops and meetings that provide training on effective treatment strategies for individuals with autism spectrum disorders. We also provide information on ABA and special education law trainings through our monthly emails and newsletters. Our tuition reimbursement and conference stipend programs help support the development of ABA resources in the Greater Houston area and make it possible for more teachers and parents to learn about scientifically validated teaching methods for children, teens and adults with autism. We are supported primarily by individual contributions and volunteer efforts.
