About Autism Learning Partners in Holyoke

Autism Learning Partners (formerly Pacific Child & Family Associates) began offering services to children with autism and other development disabilities, and their families, in 1988. The company was an early proponent of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and quickly adopted this clinical methodology as the cornerstone of its services to children and families. Autism Learning Partners now offers treatment services in many states across the US, collaborating with doctors, therapist, families, schools, and specialists for complete, effective care.

The mission of Autism Learning Partners is to provide the highest level of clinical expertise to facilitate significant and sustainable improvement for the individuals and families we serve.

Autism Learning Partners strives to give hope, support and paths of progress for children and their families living with Autism and related disorders. We believe that a tailored, comprehensive care plan managed by our exceptional clinical talent, partnered with love and commitment from the family, allows each child to achieve his or her maximum potential.

Erin has provided ABA services to families and individuals with disabilities since 2008. She has worked in local schools, outpatient centers and homes applying the principals of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). The emerging field of ABA has lead Erin to think outside the box and provide her clients with creative approaches to program and skill building. Erin grew up in Western Mass and looks forward to helping ALP become a benefit to the area. “If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn” – Ignacio Estrada

Therapy sessions might take place in your home or community, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends. Each session, a Behavior Technician will work one-on-one with your child, targeting individualized goals embedded into fun and functional activities. Sessions can last 2-4 hours depending on your child’s needs. Parent training is always a part of the treatment plan, as we want you to have that support.

There are parent organizations and resources within the Holyoke area that may be helpful supplements to ABA therapy. Please contact us for more information.

The medical diagnosis must come from a diagnostic provider, such as a Primary Care Physician or Psychologist. Unfortunately, an IEP will not suffice on its own. A diagnostic evaluation, like the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), would need to be completed.

We currently do not conduct diagnostic evaluations at this location, but can provide families with a list of diagnosticians in the Holyoke area.
