In 2006, ATPF founded the FREE Early Intervention Preschool Screening Program to provide free screenings for language and developmental delays to children in local preschools throughout California by a Speech-Language Pathologist. Early Intervention is key to the successful treatment of children on the autism spectrum. The screenings effectively identify early signs of autism spectrum disorders in children, giving parents the chance to establish a diagnosis and treatment plan at a critical time in their child's life. These screenings have been a lifeline in providing children and families the resources they need to be kindergarten ready. ATPF screens more than 2,000 preschool children per year, at no charge to families or schools. More than 17,600 preschoolers screened to date.
