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 through our mission of CARES: Community Awareness, Advocacy, Research & Early Intervention Screenings. 

ATPF provides free Early Intervention Preschool Screenings to over 2,000 youth annually with over 20,600 preschoolers screened to date since 2006.

ATPF’s Youth Education and Developmental Services coordinates and provides more than 20 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.*
