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 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.

The mentoring program is available in both English and Spanish.
