U of A signage; westsideBrewer-Porch Children’s Center has a long, rich tradition of building on children’s strengths with patience, care, and compassion.

The Center was established by the Alabama Legislature in 1970 to provide a model treatment program for Alabama’s special-needs children, adolescents, and their families. Our namesakes are Albert Brewer, a former governor of Alabama, and Ralph Porch, a former legislator. We are a program of the College of Arts and Sciences at The University of Alabama and our activities are closely linked to the University’s mission of service, teaching, and research.

We serve as a teaching/learning site for students from The University of Alabama and other colleges and universities. Brewer-Porch is also a research site for faculty, students, and staff. We believe our participation in teaching and research are critical factors in keeping Brewer-Porch at the forefront of evidence-based practices and innovative treatment approaches.
