NYFAC’s Intake Department serves and supports any individual diagnosed with autism and other developmental disabilities who reside in Brooklyn and Queens.


Our Intake Department provides non-waiver case management to individuals and their families. We assist individuals in obtaining Medicaid and Medicaid Waiver services for their child. A child qualifies for Medicaid Waiver by obtaining OPWDD eligibility. Once they have eligibility, Intake assists them with enrolling into our Medicaid Service Coordination and HCBS waiver programs.


If NYFAC is not the best fit for your child, our Intake Department will direct you and make the proper referrals to get you the help your child needs.


NYFAC will be forming parent support groups and workshops as well as parent trainings. We will also host monthly orientation meetings where we will assist you in finding the best services that fit your child’s needs, and help get you started in our intake process.
