PCDI Mission Statement

The mission of the Princeton Child Development Institute 

is to provide effective, science-based intervention 

for children and adults with autism

and, through research and dissemination,  

to extend treatment resources to people with autism, 

both nationally and internationally.

The Princeton Child

Development Institute

Pioneering Autism Intervention and Research for over 43 years

PCDI, founded in 1970, is a private, non-profit program offering a broad spectrum of science-based services to children, youths, and adults with autism. The Institute not only provides quality treatment, education, and professional training and mentoring in New Jersey, but through its research, has pioneered comprehensive intervention models that are used nationally and internationally for the benefit of persons with autism.

These programs teach young children to talk, play with siblings and friends, and read and write. Adolescents continue academic and work-study programs while learning to participate in their homes and communities. Adults perfect skills that allow them to maintain jobs and achieve greater levels of independence.

Because autism knows no national or cultural boundaries, PCDI shares its pioneering programs, technology, and research with professionals in the US and abroad so that all people who struggle with autism may benefit.

Thank you!
PCDI is grateful for the many wonderful people who
donated to us on #GivingTuesday

PCDI volunteers worked hard to coordinate our first #GivingTuesday campaign.  Thanks to an amazing team of volunteers, family and staff who spread the word on social media, our circle of friends has grown. Many new supporters now know about the programs PCDI provides for children and adults with autism. Thank you again!

During PCDI’s ‘Month of Giving Back’, our community collected over 30 bags of clothes for the Vietnam Vets.  We also collected 5 large boxes of food to donate to the Frenchtown Presbyterian Church Food Pantry and 40 pounds of candy that was sent to our troops.  As part of the month-long campaign, PCDI students volunteered at the Princeton Historical Society and stuffed 500 gift bags for the Hopewell Valley High School’s Turkey Trot.
