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.

Technology Dissemination

The Growth of Technology Dissemination

After the Institute moved to its new location on Cold Soil Road in 1985, requests for training and technical assistance burgeoned. The demand for technology dissemination set the stage for careful, ongoing examination of variables that are critical to program replication. Over a period of years, it was noted that those new programs with greatest fidelity were most often achieved by professionals who, after significant periods of training and mentoring at the Institute, received technical support from PCDI during the first, formative years of their new agencies. On the basis of these findings, the Institute expanded opportunities for doctoral students and young professionals to pursue residencies at PCDI, and committed more monetary and personnel resources to technology dissemination.
