Welcome to the LA FEAT website!

LA FEAT is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization serving parents and families of children with an ASD diagnosis (Autism Spectrum Disorder, 299.00).

LA FEAT’s mission is to educate families and the community about quality Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment, and to help families obtain funding for quality ABA treatment. We serve the greater Los Angeles area and the surrounding counties.

LA FEAT believes that newly diagnosed children with ASD should receive intensive, quality, effective treatment that is based on research.  The overwhelming research-based evidence currently supports early and intensive ABA treatment for an ASD diagnosis.
