New Leaf Center is committed to accomplishing our mission through:

  • Access to population-specific diagnostic evaluation
  • Access to consultation for urgent medical issues
  • Family-centered guidance regarding treatment options
  • Participatory research that focuses on immediate needs
  • Facilitation of productive discussion across cultures, disciplines, specialties and institutions about the needs of special children.
  • Development of long-term sustainability through networking, fundraising, and recruitment.


We aim to eliminate the useless suffering of children…Suffering children cannot choose whether or not their pain and loneliness will be useful. That choice rests in the hands of the adults around them.
