Families for Early Autism Treatment (F.E.A.T.) organized in 1998 to help families with children who have received the diagnosis of autism or other autistic spectrum disorders including Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) and Asperger's Syndrome. The Chattanooga F.E.A.T. Chapter is composed of parents and professionals concerned about the welfare of autistic children. The monthly meetings at T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital offer support and encouragement by providing information and by giving parents the opportunity to interact with others with similar concerns.
Our Primary Objectives Are As Follows:
To provide support, encouragement, and guidance to parents seeking
treatment for their young autistic children and by providing the opportunity
for parents to interact with other parents with similar concerns.
To evaluate and compare effectiveness of current treatment approaches and
make treatment information available to parents.
3. To encourage and endorse a long-term, cost-effective program to help parents
effectively teach developmental skills.
4. To maintain and make available a resource library of materials to be used in
treatment programs for autistic children.
- Chattanooga meetings are held the
2nd Tuesday of each month
at 6:30 p.m.
in room 140 of the Massoud Pediatric Building
T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital.
