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, screening and mentoring for families impacted by autism.

We now screen over 2,000 youth annually with 8,323 preschoolers screened to date since 2006.

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

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.
