We helped one particular individual learn to tie his shoes and write in cursive, after his school tried many times – it was a big deal for all of us. We’re doing everything to give the individuals more opportunities to grow, make choices, expand their minds, and have fun.L. Velocci, Program Supervisor
I’ve looked in the eyes of kids with Autism and their parents. I’ve seen the fear of not knowing where to go and what to do. We do amazing things here at NYFAC! I’ve seen individuals who were turned away from other programs or sat at home for years without a day program, come to NYFAC and shine!M. Rendeiro, Compliance Officer
Coming into this field, you may think that you will be the person teaching, but it is actually the other way around. The individuals teach us new things about themselves and we often end up learning new things about ourselves as well. It’s a job that doesn’t feel like a job.N. Garcia, Administrative Assistant
As a college student, I attest to the fact that working at NYFAC makes textbooks come alive.
