Samantha Gonzalez

MS, BCBA
Associate Clinical Director

Samantha has worked in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) since 2014. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Science in Counseling with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis, both from California State University, Los Angeles. She has experience working in clinic, home and school settings. Her areas of expertise are early intervention programs, toilet training, and severe challenging behaviors. Samantha began her career at ALP in August 2018 as a supervisor and stepped into the role of a Senior Behavior Analyst in April 2019 and then Director of the Gateway Region in March of 2022. Mentoring and teaching are her true passion to ensure that quality services are being provided to as many individuals as possible. “Being part of the growth and change in not only a client’s life but a family, is the highest reinforcement, but to be part of the growth and development of another clinician who is going to go out in the world and change so many lives is what I believe to be my true purpose.”

    Downey FAQs

    • How long does the diagnostic process take?

      Once the referral and insurance verification is obtained, the evaluation process typically takes 1-2 weeks.

    • Does my child need an autism diagnosis to get ABA services?

      Insurance companies will authorize Applied Behavior Analysis services when a child has a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). If your child does not have a diagnosis of ASD, you can choose to pay for services privately.

    • What are the next steps now that my child has a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder?

      If your child is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, our team will work with your family to secure Applied Behavior Analysis services. We will assist your family in getting approval for a Functional Behavior Assessment. This includes an assessment evaluating the function of your child’s behavior, a first step in developing a comprehensive behavioral treatment program.

    • Can my BT drive my child around, if needed?

      No. Your Behavior Technician can accompany your family for a clinically recommended trip in a family vehicle. BTs are prohibited from driving the child in any vehicle, even if a parent or guardian is present in the car.
