Welcome to our website.

The Mountaineer Autism Project (MAP) is a nonprofit organization of parents of children with autism and professionals in the autism field. MAP’s goal is to have one voice in West Virginia dedicated to early autism detection, diagnosis, and early intensive behavioral intervention.

Friends of MAP-

Research indicates intensive applied behavior analysis (ABA) is effective for nearly 90% of children with autism. In 2010 it was estimated only 1.6 % of WV children with autism were receiving intensive ABA.

Do you have a friend or family member who has been diagnosed with autism?

Are you an autism treatment professional committed to early intensive behavioral intervention?

Are you interested in attending a MAP meeting?
