Welcome to the Autism Professionals Circle

Autism Professionals Circle, APC for short, is entering its third year of operations. Founder by Lisa Shaanan, MS. OTR/L, in January 2009, APC enables its members to better address the needs of those to whom they provide services. We do this by creating a collaborative and diverse group of professionals with active leadership by Dror Schneider and Tiffani Zabor. See more HERE...



We have changed our venue from Jean Weingarten Peninsula School for the Deaf (thank you, again) to San Mateo - Atrium at Pacific Business Center in San Mateo.

Located at the border of Foster City and San Mateo on the southeast quadrant of Highways 101 and 92, our PBC Atrium Center is strategically located in the Peninsula at equidistance between San Francisco, San Jose, and the East Bay.
