TERI History

TERI About UsSince its inception in 1980, TERI has grown to accommodate the needs of many while remaining true to its original goal- to improve the quality of life for children and adults with developmental and learning disabilities. Through support, advocacy, dedication, innovation, and resolve, we have brought opportunity and hope to countless individuals and families. TERI looks to the future by continuing its commitment to set new standards through establishing and operating model programs, conducting applied research in best practice procedures, and offering training and consultation to professionals, families, and other community members.

TERI specializes in serving individuals who have needs which cannot be met by other existing programs. This includes services to persons who have autism, intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, brain trauma, severe behavioral disorders, dual diagnoses, and learning disabilities.

The agency has been recognized as a model program in the State of California for the quality of services it provides to this population. As a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) California Corporation, the agency relies on donations from the community and foundations in order to continue to set the highest standards and ensure an uncompromised quality of life to this population.


To change the way the world views and helps children and adults touched by special needs.


To become an internationally recognized center of innovation and social change for children and adults touched by special needs throughout their lifespan.

To achieve this vision, TERI is embarking on our most ambitious project to date, the creation of a state of the art campus. The first facility of its kind, the Campus of Life will be a true center of excellence in the education and empowerment of individuals with developmental disabilities. The knowledge and innovative approaches generated on campus will be shared with our outside partners to improve the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities the world over. Set on 20 acres in San Diego County, the campus will provide an inspired and therapeutic environment for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities.  Click below to learn more.
