Parent Mentor Program

Founded in 2003, the ATPF Parent 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.

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.

ATPF holds various Mentor Events throughout the community during the year for our paired families, along with a variety of on-going community and social events for parents and mentors. Since 2003, this program has served over 1,500 families to date.
