WHO WE ARE

QSAC is a New York City and Long Island based nonprofit that supports 
children and adults with autism, together with their families, in achieving 
greater independence, realizing their future potential, and contributing to 
their communities in a meaningful way by offering person-centered services.

QSAC was founded in 1978 by a group of parents confronted limited service options for their children with autism. Today, QSAC provides direct services to more than 2,100 children and adults throughout the region. 

QSAC pursues its mission through direct services that provide a supportive 
and individualized setting for children and adults with autism to improve 
their communication, socialization, academic, and functional skills.
 Programs for children include early intervention, preschool, school, after
school, and in-home educational and support services. QSAC’s adult programs 
include supportive living, skill development programs, and in-home services. All of QSAC’s programs provide supportive and trained staff, 
high-impact services, and a commitment to quality.

In support of its direct service programs, QSAC works to be an innovator in
 the field of developmental disability providers by implementing new 
technologies to best support the children and adults in our programs. In 
addition, QSAC’s clinical and educational leadership teams regularly embark
 on research projects that seek to further unlock new and innovative 
strategies and methodologies for best supporting the learning outcomes of
 the individuals we serve.

To extend its impact, QSAC offers parent and sibling support groups, trainings, an online learning platform, an annual conference for parents, and other programs that expand
 the community’s awareness regarding autism and access to services.
