Welcome to New York Families for Autistic Children!

Since 1998 we have been motivating and inspiring individuals diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder — and their families — to live life to the fullest.


Providing support, education, recreational and socialization programs is just a small facet of what we do.  Working together with professionals in the field, amazing, dedicated parents, grandparents and other family members, we innovate. We design cutting-edge programs that challenge our individuals to learn, develop and grow to maximize their full potential.



NYFAC Food Pantry Donation 2015

NYFAC gives back to our community


NYFAC’s 2nd annual Thanksgiving food drive was once again a success. This year, thanks to the generosity of those who gave, including the Jamaica Rotary Club, Key Food, and Stop & Shop, we were able to give 36 NYFAC families a wonderful holiday meal. And we were lucky enough to have 5 boxes of non-perishable foods left over, which we donated to the Our Lady of Grace Food Pantry on Tuesday, December 1.

Librarians learn about ASD


NYFAC has begun a partnership with the Queens Library whereby we are working to make all branches in the system “autism friendly.” An integral component of this is training, and on Tuesday, November 17, Andrew Baumann, President & CEO of NYFAC, educated librarians on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The session was a success, as many attendees said they were engrossed by Baumann’s presentation and learned  a lot about a topical, important subject.
