Mission Statement

The David Center's primary purposes and objectives include: a. Providing guidance, education, and support for families of children with autism spectrum disorders by creating a network of parents and professionals who may benefit by sharing information and resources; b. Training parents, family members, educators, and health-related professionals in the currently acceptable and effective treatments for children with autism; c. Maintaining a resource library for use in education and treatment programs; d. Creating and fostering public awareness of autism spectrum disorders through programs, publications, and public speaking activities; e. Supporting efforts to raise funds for the treatment of, and research into, the causes and consequences of autism.

Description

The David Center was founded in 1999 by Dr. Patricia Elvir, a pediatrician, and her husband, W. James Pons, after they became aware of how difficult it is for parents of children with ASDs to identify and access the information, support, and programs their children need to meet their fullest potential. With a board of directors made up primarily of parents of children on the autism spectrum, The David Center has been a leader in the raising awareness, providing information and support, and empowering parents, families, and professionals.
