Our Mission

Autism Tree is the only organization of its kind, serving San Diego communities and beyond. We change the lives of thousands of children and families living with autism every year.

Autism Tree exists to help the autism community live our best lives.

Founded in 2003, Autism Tree is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving autism communities around the world and benefits the entire family.

Autism Tree supports families through our four core values:


We embrace every family with love and acceptance.

We connect every family with a community of resources.

We empower you to build a better world by investing in your vision.

We create organic relationships, meaningful opportunities, and lasting friendships.

Autism Tree provides over 200 community-based family events annually under our 20 programs, each created to engage the autism community in a variety of play-centered activities and designed to build social confidence, language and communication skills. Watch our 20th Anniversary video below:
