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.

Pre-School and School

Education Program…Assuring Academic and Personal Growth
Preschoolers and school-aged children attend school from 8:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.,
five days per week. Individualized pre-academic and academic programs are offered to children and youths ages 3 to 21. Intensive, one-to-one sessions alternate with small-group activities that teach children to relate to classmates and participate in social situations. Each child’s schedule of learning activities is especially designed to meet his or her needs, but all youngsters’ programs emphasize language development and social interaction.

Parents or guardians and Institute personnel share in identifying each young person’s instruction and treatment goals and in developing individualized programs best suited to that person’s needs. Because all intervention activities are data-based, teachers, therapists, and parents directly observe daily performance and collect data that provide objective feedback and permit ongoing evaluation of the effects of intervention. On the basis of these data, individualized programs are revised or redesigned as needed to assure each young person’s continued progress.

The preschool and school are accredited and certified by the Mercer County Department of Education and the New Jersey Department of Education. Children may be referred by parents, local school districts, or other child advocates or human service agencies.
