Who We Serve

Donate to PCDA

I just have to say we've had problems with my child.  But his therapist has made a huge difference in his life. He likes being there and his friendships are due to all of you. I'm so grateful.  Thank you."

Here at PCDA, we realize that many diagnoses rarely reflect the complexities of the individual. The infants and children who receive services at PCDA come from a wide variety of developmental backgrounds, each with their own specific concerns and diagnoses. While some may come to us with a diagnosis of autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or mental retardation, others may come with a complicated medical history or even a common/rare genetic disorder. For this reason, we view each child as unique, having their own individualized personality, interests, and challenges. Utilizing the DIR® framework of functional-emotional development as the guide to our intervention services, PCDA's interdisciplinary team of professionals is able to address a wide range of developmental and behavioral concerns. Therefore, treating the child, not the diagnosis.

Although centrally located in Pasadena, PCDA's reach to the community covers a large portion of the greater Los Angeles area, including the city of Los Angeles, San Gabriel Valley, San Fernando Valley, West Covina, Downey, La Mirada and Whittier.
