Frequently Asked Questions in Glendale

There are parent organizations and resources within Glendale that may be helpful supplements to ABA therapy. Please visit North Los Angeles County Regional Center and Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center for more information.

We do not provide support with academics, such as homework, reading, etc. However, if the child shows behaviors during these activities, we would provide support around the behavior (i.e. compliance, transitions, attending, etc.).

Yes, but parents/guardians must be involved and are required to run the majority of the program. We work with our families to provide techniques that can be used at home and outside of sessions.

Therapy sessions could take place in your home or community environment, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends, and if the school and insurance provides approval.

We do not currently have a center in the Glendale area, but please check back for any updates.
