Welcome to our site!

The Young Autism Program Charitable Foundation (YAPCF) is dedicated to enhancing the education of the students and supporting awareness and research into Autism spectrum disorders.
 
Our eductaional goal is primarily to bridge the state funding to provide a 1:1 student to teacher ratio, which has been shown to be the most effective way to teach children with autism.  The foundation also provides additional supplies and materials for the Medford and Ronkonkoma campuses. 
 
YAPCF also supports many programs both loacally and nationally, such as the Developmental Disabilities Institute, the parent organization of the Young Autism Program, the National Association for Autism Research (NAAR), and the Autism Socient of America (ASA).
 
YAPCF is driven by parents and friends of the program and supports over 120 students today.

Autism knows no racial, ethnic or social boundaries.  Family income, lifestyle or education levels do not affect the chance of occurrence.
