ATPF provides free Early Intervention Preschool Screenings to over 2,000 youth annually with 13,128 preschoolers screened to date since 2006.

ATPF’s Youth Education and Developmental Services coordinates and provides 20 FREE intensive programs, designed to engage youth with autism in a variety of services which aim at improving their confidence, behaviors and their social communications.
