Our Mission & History

Our Mission Statement:

Rocky Mountain Autism Center strives to build and strengthen relationships among children affected by autism spectrum disorders, their families, their community and the professionals who serve them.

Located in Lone Tree, Colorado, RMAC was founded by Dr. Patrick J. Rydell in 2002. Dr. Rydell has devoted more than 30 years of his life to developing and implementing autism programs, receiving a doctorate specifically for autism spectrum disorders in 1989. Government agencies, medical facilities, universities and families throughout the world request him for his training and program development.

As autism becomes a more prominent and well-known diagnosis, RMAC continues to lead in innovative interventions and therapy. Our programs are founded on a unique combination of the Learning Style Profile and the  SCERTS Model, both of which Dr. Rydell had a significant role in creating. We strive to help families who are concerned about their loved ones with ASD understand each other, learn how to communicate, and improve their quality of life.
