LAS VEGAS- FEAT is hosting the increasingly popular monthly Family Night at Las Vegas’ well-liked Sky Zone Trampoline Park beginning on September 29th 6:00PM-8:00PM. Children and adults with autism, along with their friends and family, are welcome to experience a night of sensory action! For a discounted rate of $5 per jumper, each guest will enjoy an hour of jump time starting at 6:30PM. Every effort will be made to accommodate all jumpers with special needs. The goal is to create an emotionally and physically safe experience for kids with autism to come enjoy themselves and play with others.
Parents are encouraged to take advantage of the resource fair and attend the presentations of guest speakers who are experts in a variety of topics. This will be happening in junction with the jump time. It is a great opportunity to hear from our community of professionals and connect with local service providers, specializing in autism.
Jump time can be reserved by contacting Sky Zone directly at 702.560.5900. Sky Zoneis located at 7440 Dean Martin Drive, Suite 201, Las Vegas 89139. Friendly Family Night will be hosted at Sky Zone September 29th, October 27th, November 24th and December 29th, 6:00PM-8:00PM.

Families for Effective Autism Treatment, Inc. (FEAT) is a non-profit organization of parents and professionals, designed to help families with children who have received the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), including Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), or Asperger’s Syndrome. FEAT offers a support network where families can meet each other and discuss issues surrounding autism and treatment options. FEAT has a Board of Directors that meets monthly to discuss issues, establish priorities, and vote on the direction of the organization.
FEAT publishes e-bulletins on current events in the Southern Nevada area, as well as changes in national policies and medical breakthroughs that affect our children. FEAT conducts tutor trainings in order to provide families with home programs a source of dedicated tutors for their children. FEAT also conducts yearly family outings such as the Annual FEAT Family Picnic & Resource Fair, Holiday Party, the Annual ‘A-Games’ and other events where families of children with autism can gather, network, and enjoy the day.
In the beginning, FEAT ignited change. Children were not properly diagnosed prior to the age of 6, they received minimal services not geared to the needs of children with autism and intensive intervention was not an option in Southern Nevada. Today FEAT's principals of helping all children in Southern Nevada are still very much alive. Early diagnosis and appropriate services are now possible. Support and empowerment exist.
