Move To Cold Soil Road
During the early years, the Institute’s headquarters and school programs occupied leased facilities, but 1983 marked the beginning of a capital campaign to purchase land and construct a new building at 300 Cold Soil Road, Princeton. The new quarters were especially designed to meet the education and treatment needs of children with autism, and to facilitate professional training and research on autism intervention.
Members of the Board of Trustees actively solicited potential donors, enlisted the support of community leaders, and conducted several benefits. In addition, grants were received from The Kresge Foundation, the New Jersey Department of Human Services, and many local foundations.
The new building was dedicated in 1985; all necessary funds were raised, and neither long- nor short-term financing was necessary.
