Welcome to WAPADH!

Founded in 1969, the Whittier Area Parents’ Association for the Developmentally Handicapped (WAPADH) is a private, non-profit organization that supports individuals with a variety of lifelong disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down’s syndrome and related medical and/or behavioral disorders. Our history of achievements is the result of strong community and family support and an organizational culture that continually seeks to remove barriers and change the limiting cultural stereotypes long associated with this population.
