FEAT-FMC.org started in March 2004. The original FEAT was founded in 1993 by a group of parents and professionals who wanted to improve the early intervention services that were offered in the Sacramento area. Together they wrote grants and raised enough money to provide intensive early intervention training for parents and local professionals.

FEAT-FMC was created to help improve awareness of autism in the central San Joaquin Valley and to help parents make sure that their children were getting appropriate services, such as ABA programs, speech-OT-PT therapy. The goal of providing ABA programs to young children is to assure that all young children with autism have the opportunity to maximize their potential. As a result of ABA programs, many of the children are now attending regular public schools, most with the assistance of an aide.

One of the goals of FEAT-FMC is to assist parents in getting early diagnosis and treatment for their children. When treatment has been delayed, either by local school districts or the regional center, FEAT-FMC will assist families to obtain intervention programs, speech programs, occupational therapy, and evaluations. In addition, FEAT-FMC will try to assist families during IEP meetings, Planning Team Meetings, Fair Hearings, and Due Process Hearings.
