Welcome to Malama Pono Autism Center. We believe every child has a story that is waiting to be told. Sometimes we don't hear those stories because we need to listen more carefully. Sometimes those stories can be told differently. But deep in each child is a beautiful person waiting to meet the world.

Autism doesn't need to change that.

Autism is a part of many families story. For some it is struggle, others it is joy, but for all the families we work with we believe Autism doesn't need to stand in the way of health and happiness.
