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.

Early Intervention

Giving Toddlers a Strong Start

The Early Intervention Program serves children who are 24 months of age or younger at the time of referral. Toddlers with diagnoses of autism are accepted without regard to initial skill levels.  The applied behavior analysis program is both center-based and home-based.  The center-based component emphasizes language development and social skills.  Toddlers and their parents regularly visit the Institute, and Institute personnel make regular home visits. The  home-based component includes programming family routines to facilitate teaching and learning.  Eating, bathing, play, and social interaction skills are taught in natural contexts, and parents’ participation increases the total number of hours of intervention delivered each week.  The toddlers receive no less than 30 hours of intervention per week.
