  • In 2005 ATPF launched an initiative to provide FREE Early Intervention Preschool Screenings to children in local preschools throughout California for language and developmental delays. Provided by Kara Dodds and Associates in San Diego and Dr. Jean Novak of San Jose State University in the Bay Area, ATPF Early Intervention Preschool Screenings catch warning signs in children, allowing parents to get further diagnosis and treatment at a critical time in their children's lives. It costs the Autism Tree $36 to screen each child. ATPF screens over 2,000 preschool children per year.

Supporting Families Affected by Autism

Founded in 2003 Autism Tree Project Foundation (ATPF) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving communities in San Diego County and The Bay Area by assisting with Education, Advocacy, Early Intervention Preschool Screening, Research and Mentoring for families impacted by autism.


ATPF provides free Early Intervention Preschool Screenings to over 2,000 youth annually with 10,008 preschoolers screened to date since 2006.

ATPF’s Youth Education and Developmental Services coordinates and provides 18 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.

ATPF benefits the entire family.

Every family tree is touched by autism. If you don't know someone with autism you will. Autism affects 1 in 50 school aged children, ages 6-17.

*Center for Disease Control & Prevention, 2013.


We say thank you to our members who make automatic donations to ATPF monthly. Your donations make it possible for us to continue to provide our 16 programs at no cost to our children and families!
