Pacific Child and Family Associates (PCFA) Changes Name to Autism Learning Partners

Pacific Child and Family Associates (PCFA), a leader in the delivery of services for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), is changing its name. The company will be called Autism Learning Partners in order to better reflect its mission.

“We’ve grown as a health care delivery organization, both technically and geographically, from California to Massachusetts,” said Jeffrey P. Winter, the company’s President and CEO. “We wanted a name that more accurately describes what we do and who we are.”

The name was chosen after company principals studied the market and requested feedback from more than 200 of the families it services.

“We wanted to include ‘autism’ in the new name to clearly identify the community we serve,” explained Winter. “We serve children with developmental needs other than Autism, but the vast majority of our clients are on the spectrum.”

The word ‘Learning’ was included to reflect Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the science of learning across all areas of development and the dominant treatment method of individuals on the spectrum. ABA therapy is designed to improve communication, social relationships, schooling and ultimately a positive work/life experience.

Finally, the word Partners’ was included to reflect the company’s encouragement of communication and coordination among family members and other professionals in the child’s life, which Winter says “is vital to progress and development.”

In addition to the name change to Autism Learning Partners, the company will soon unveil a new website.

Autism Learning Partners provides services throughout California, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Texas, New York and Washington D.C. Autism Learning Partners also offers an interdisciplinary model including Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, and physical therapy at its subsidiary, Children’s Learning Connection in Orange County. Their services are provided in homes, schools and our clinics across the United States.
