Explore Programs & Resources

Depending on your autistic child’s age, interests and needs, ATPF has a remarkable network of volunteer directors, parents and professionals to help your family on your autism journey through our 20 programs. These programs are designed to get our families out into the community, introduce them to more parents who understand and give the children more opportunities to socialize, create, and maintain friendships - all while having a fun, shared experience!

We also offer members-only access to 300+ impact videos on our YouTube channel, including but not limited to our Reading with Autism Tree series, ATPF at Home series, and weekly Lunch & Learn series.

Register for Upcoming Events

Our number one priority is and always will be providing more social opportunities and connections for our children, parents, and families. Under the Family Membership level, ATPF families receive unlimited and complimentary registration for the whole family to participate in our 200+ events (offered either virtually, in-person, or both) per year, including our annual Neuroscience Conference every Fall and Winter Wonderland holiday celebration in December. 

Our team adds new events to our calendars every month! Check out our event calendar to register.
