Since my recent interview with renowned author and speaker Sean Barron, I’ve been increasingly interested in how those of us with autism can build upon and express our unique strengths. So I was intrigued by Uniquely Abled, a foundation headquartered in Valley Village, California, which helps people with autism find their abilities and match them to jobs.(more…)
Dr. Joyce C. Tu, founder and director of Center for Behavioral Sciences and our related company, ABA Unlimited, traveled to China again last week to present four days of behavior analysis workshops in two cities: Haikou and Guangdong, the most populous cities in southern China’s Hainan and Guangdong provinces. Filled to capacity, there were about 500 attendees—primarily educators and physicians. This is a repeat performance for Dr. Tu, who has presented a series of six applied behavior analysis (“ABA”) workshops in China in three consecutive years, reportedly earning unanimous praise from frontline teachers, industry experts and institutional leaders.
CBS is proud to announce that as of November, 2018, we are partnering with our related company ABA Unlimited (or “ABAU”), as part of our commitment to behavior analysis education. Founded by CBS’ Director, Dr. Joyce C. Tu, ABAU is a Type 2 Authorized Continuing Education (“ACE”) provider through the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. ABAU offers live and online professional educational seminars in behavioral health and applied behavior analysis. CBS supports that mission by lending talented speakers and hosting ABAU’s live seminars in CBS’ Southern California offices.

Some people on the autism spectrum might seem like robots trying to discover how to be human. As an individual diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), I can tell you that robots and autism can be a helpful mix. Although modern robot therapy is used primarily in helping children, perhaps someday robots will be used to help people of all ages with ASD.
