mother of ECAC client
My daughter Madalyn has been with Emerald Coast Autism Center for a decade. We moved to this area specifically for the program at ECAC and were in pure crisis dealing with aggression due to lack of resources. Through ECAC’s commitment to Madalyn, their hard work, and dedication Madalyn regained her self control and happiness. ECAC gave me my daughter back and saved her life. Now Madalyn is 18 years old and is in the Transition to Work Program. This new building and all it has to offer our children is imperative for their growth and success. It will give them the opportunity to have a full life with purpose - maintaining jobs, learning self help skills, and so much more. We know this will not happen without the support and donations from our amazing community. Thank you for being a part of my child’s journey and giving her a chance of living a quality life. Without your support we would be lost, and these resources are everything to our families. Thank you for all your support and for caring about our children. If you ever need confirmation of the exceptional quality of ECAC’s vision and mission, I encourage you to come visit our children. They are so special and have so much promise. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Our family is beyond grateful!
"Have you ever worked for an ABA organization that cared about its staff as much as its clients? Well, I have. Emerald Coast Autism Center is not just a place to work, but is a community of professionals collaborating, learning, and growing alongside one another. This community starts at the top with two founders and leaders who genuinely care about the quality of services and work-life balance for its staff. In this environment, I have grown into the knowledgeable and ethical Board Certified Behavior Analyst I aspired to become."
Wonderful group of people doing incredible work. Thanks ECAC for all you do for our community!
This place is one of a kind. The co-founders are an amazing BCBA-CFA/Autism Mom duo who are incredibly selfless and truly prioritize their clients and employees. I have worked for multiple ABA companies in different states and nothing quite compares to ECAC...
