Our Story

The Friendship Tree was established in 2013 by the founders of the Wisconsin Early Autism Project as an opportunity to bring evidence-based, comprehensive behavioral treatment to young children with autism in a peer-enriched environment.  As pioneers in behavioral treatment, our founders' previous research had proven that behavioral treatment, when delivered early and intensively, would result in significant and life-changing gains for children with autism and their families.  By creating the Friendship Tree, they took the treatment approach one step further to ensure that children with autism could access an environment in which they could develop friendships, school readiness skills, and real-life learning from the start. The Friendship Tree now runs in partnership with the Wisconsin Early Autism Project to provide the highest quality of care and individualized treatment to each child who enrolls in our center.
