Autism Services in California
These are the technical names for the services we offer. Above all, we want you to know we use proven, scientific therapies that are customized to your child and your family. Note that services may differ by region and clinician. If you are wondering what services are right for your child, please contact us.
If your child needs a diagnosis, we’ll connect you with a diagnostician near you who can conduct an evaluation and provide you with all the documents that will be needed to move forward.
Center-based ABA services allow your child to learn a variety of skills in a structured environment. This setting enables generalization of skills in a less familiar environment.

Parent Education &
It has been proven that parents who are actively involved in their child’s therapy often see more progress in their children. Our clinical team is trained to build success for the entire family unit.
Achievement in the domain of social interaction greatly improves the quality of life for a learner and we place a premium on screening, assessment, and individually tailored interventions.
Telehealth is a tool that allows us to deliver Applied Behavior Analysis services directly to families using electronic telecommunication technology.
Our processes to improve cognition, adaptive, social, and emotional domains range from structured lessons to more naturalistic programming that can look like play, chore completion, or conversation.
Focused ABA services are for individuals who (a) need treatment only for a limited number of key functional skills, or (b) have such an acute problem behavior that its treatment needs to be prioritized.
A child’s day is made up of activities and routines, or “occupations.” These occupations may be playing with toys, coloring, eating with a spoon or putting on a T-shirt. Occupational therapy helps children develop these essential skills.

I already have an ABA provider. Can I only enroll in Social Skills Groups with Autism Learning Partners?
It is possible, but you will need to contact your insurance plan. Many funding sources/insurance providers do not approve more than one authorization for treatment in this area. Please check with your specific provider for their rules and guidelines.
In order for a child to make progress, family participation is a vital component. Your Clinical team will recommend a level of participation they determine is necessary. We encourage parents to sit in on sessions as often as they can. You are not required to participate in all ABA sessions, however, a caregiver over the age of 18 must be onsite at the home at all times. For clinic-based appointments, the child may be dropped off.
No. Your Behavior Technician can accompany your family for a clinically recommended trip. BTs are prohibited from driving the child, however, even if a parent or guardian is present in the car.
What Our Patients Are Saying
" ABA was imperative [to our three boys'] success and the knowledge, time, instruction, and passion that was put into our family from Autism Learning Partners has carried over into all aspects of their life. "
" I liked that Autism Learning Partners had structure and order on how they approached therapy and goals. I value the time they took in getting to know my son on a personal level so that ABA treatment was tailored for my son. "
" ALP was very agile and very quick to reply anytime we needed help. Now that we are receiving services from other providers (non ABA related), we see the difference and value the quality support that ALP provided. "
