- Support families of children with ASD by increasing knowledge of the disorder and its evidence-based treatment.
- Increase awareness of ASD at the community level, to include medical practitioners, school systems and civic organizations.
By law, children with disabilities have an equal opportunity to a free and public education. Currently, the public school system has a special-education curriculum that is general in its application. This is not the best method to ensure children with autism reach their fullest potential. Children with autism cannot be taught en masse like typically developing children. Each child must begin with an intensive one-on-one plan specifically created to meet that child’s needs. Fulfillment of this critical need is the purpose for which MASC was created.
