We are a full service provider that specializes in the treatment of autism and other developmental disabilities. Our broad thinking approach addresses the whole child by collaborating with doctors, therapists, schools and specialists. Our goal is to work together to achieve the best possible outcome… PROGRESS!
Autism Learning Partners (formerly Pacific Child & Family Associates) began offering services to children with Autism and other developmental 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 32 states.
To guide this growth we have established an executive clinical team with national prominence in the behavioral health field.
Hear from ALP’s CEO Jeffrey Winter and learn more about our company name change:
Over the past year a great deal of market and family research has been put into identifying a new name for our organization that better supports who we are and how we intend to play a leadership role in the ASD community. As a result of input from all of our internal team, as well as over 200 families like yours with children on the spectrum, our name is now: Autism Learning Partners.
AUTISM: We feel it’s important to have the word Autism in our name to clearly identify the community we primarily serve and allow that community to easily identify and find us when seeking a care provider for their ASD needs. We do recognize that we serve children with developmental needs other than Autism, but the vast majority of clients we serve are on the spectrum and as such our central mission will focus on serving the ASD community.
LEARNING: The word learning refers to the science of Applied Behavioral Analysis being the science of learning across all areas of development. By having learning in our name we clearly acknowledge and convey that we are focused on the science of learning and its role in improving communication, social relationships, schooling and ultimately a positive work/life experience.
PARTNERS: Finally, the word Partners provides a very important concept in terms of how we think about our approach as a care delivery organization. Now, the community calls for a far more integrated approach in terms of communication, medical records and “partnerships” with other providers to support a more multi-disciplinary and comprehensive approach to care for clients and patients.
Whether those professionals are your child’s pediatrician or psychologist, school teacher or speech therapist, our willingness to reach out and partner with other healthcare and educational professionals in our clients’ lives will create a meaningful difference in his or her progress and development.
