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 and Mentoring for families impacted by autism.

ATPF provides free Early Intervention Preschool Screenings to over 2,400 youth annually with 8,737 preschoolers screened to date since 2006.

ATPF’s Youth Education and Developmental Services coordinates and provides 16 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. 

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!
