Mentors are both parents and professionals with strong knowledge of autism spectrum disorders in addition to a passion and commitment for empowering those who face the daily challenges of raising or educating a child with autism. Mentors are there to lend an ear, help families problem solve, find the help they need for their child and offer emotional support. The ATPF Parent Mentor Program is a way to provide face-to-face support in a caring and warm environment for families new to the autism diagnosis. Mentors are both parents and professionals with strong knowledge of autism spectrum disorders in addition to a passion and commitment for empowering those who face the daily challenges of raising or educating a child with autism.

ATPF holds various Mentor Events at our office throughout the year for our paired families, along with a variety of on-going community and social events for parents and mentors. Anyone whose child has been recently diagnosed with autism is eligible to receive a mentor and attend these events at no cost to the family.
