ATPF Preschool Screenings

Written by Autism Tree Project Webmaster on Tuesday, June 26, 2012.

In 2005 the Autism Tree launched an initiative to provide free screenings of children in local preschools throughout California for language and developmental delays. Provided by Kara Dodds and Associates in San Diego and Dr. Jean Novak in the Bay Area, these screenings have caught warning signs in many children already, allowing parents to get further diagnosis and treatment at a crucial time in their children's lives. It costs the Autism Tree $31 to screen each child, with about 50 children per preschool site.

Over 4,730 preschoolers screened by ATPF to date!
