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.




     Andrew Baumann, President & CEO of New York Families for Autistic Children (NYFAC), Inc. recently addressed a crowd of about 50 from CARES (Cops for Autism Related Educational Services) at the Police Academy in College Point.

     CARES is dedicated to “providing [information], educating, and opening doors to all ranks of the Police Department of the City of New York who are parents of children with difficulties.”

     “It was an honor to be able to meet all these wonderful law enforcement personnel and parents,” said Baumann. “Together I know we can touch so many lives.”
