OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE:
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 (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 7 states.
To guide this growth we have established an executive clinical team with national prominence in the behavioral health field
We’re a passionate team of clinicians, therapists, care managers, specialists, managers, business people and insurance gurus and problem solvers that are dedicated to helping families and individuals with Autism and other disabilities progress and have the best life possible.
Our core team brings wisdom and experience from all walks of life and from all across the country. Our backgrounds are diverse, but a common mission unites us. We’re also fortunate to have a group of advisors and partners who are contributing their wisdom, capabilities, and networks to help us maximize our positive impact on the families we serve.
With the information you provide below, we'll be able to call you shortly with information that pertains to you, your insurance, location, child's age, etc.
We accept most major insurance plans. We continue to work with insurance companies as they begin to cover ABA services.
In the form above, include the name of your insurance plan. After you fill out this form, someone from our team will call you with more information. During this call we can talk about the details of your specific insurance plan, and what services your plan will cover. Services are also available through private funding.
Working one-on-one with a licensed behavioral analyst, each child is evaluated for entry-level skills. Following the evaluation, we use best practices and evidence-based interventions for learners who exhibit social skills problems and other challenging behaviors. More specifically, we “match” our interventions to the strengths of a learner and the most critical behavior excesses or skill deficits exhibited by a learner. We believe that 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.
Providing effective treatment to families of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders requires the establishment of a partnership between treatment staff and parents. This partnership involves many elements, including effective communication, mutual respect, clear boundaries, and clearly defined roles. Although every treatment team member plays a role on the team, parents play the key role. They are the most important members of their child’s treatment team. While treatment staff will come and go, parents will remain the central axis of any treatment team.
Focused ABA services are appropriate 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 should be the priority. Focused ABA usually ranges between 10-25 hours/week of direct treatment.
Examples of key functional skills include: establishing instruction-following, social communication skills, compliance with medical and dental procedures, sleep hygiene, self-care skills, safety skills, and independent leisure skills (for example, appropriate participation in family and community activities).
We have trained Behavior Technicians/Registered Behavior Technicians to support in students in the classroom. An on-site shadow to a student can help a student meet preset goals, by helping to reduce interfering behaviors so that they can access the curriculum.
We work with schools on a transition timeline based on the individual needs of the students. The behavior therapist collects data in the classroom to help with reporting and determine if goals are being met (reduction of challenging behaviors, etc.).
