Finding someone with high-functioning autism to interview for my blog was surprisingly difficult. People don’t tend to advertise their autism, so you can imagine how excited I was to have the opportunity to interview Sean Barron about his inspirations and advice to young people with autism—particularly young writers!
On Saturday, September 29th, we celebrated Center for Behavioral Sciences’ 14th anniversary and the grand opening of our new 4,100 sq. foot Irvine office, with a gathering of clients and staff! Our new main office is just across the street from CBS’ Intensive Treatment Center. It features five large treatment rooms (including a dedicated space for social skills groups for autism) and conference facilities for workshops, as well as for parent and staff training.
We’re excited to announce our newest service for CBS clients: Social Skills Groups for Autism! Our group sessions are happening now, in our Main Irvine Office! Mastering social skills can profoundly improve life for those with social deficits—particularly in the ability to make and maintain friendships, and to participate in school and the workforce.

Over the past twenty years, applied behavior analysis (ABA) treatment providers for children with developmental disabilities—particularly autism spectrum disorder (ASD)—have multiplied exponentially. But ABA treatment facilities for adults are sparse. This is a tragedy; we’re often stopping short when treatment is still critical, and in some cases, even more so.
This Month Marks CBS’ 14th Anniversary!
Founded in 2004, Center for Behavioral Sciences started with Dr. Joyce Tu’s vision of changing lives and empowering individuals with developmental disabilities through a commitment to research-driven behavior analysis. It was a commitment that endured, and it’s been quite a ride! CBS has grown to over 100 employees state-wide, providing quality behavior analysis and consulting services in California and beyond.
We’re excited to announce that effective September 1, 2018, CBS opens its fourth office, now including two treatment centers in Irvine! CBS has converted its original main office to an intensive treatment center with facilities for in-depth functional analysis assessments (FAAs) located at 17911 Sky Park Circle, Suite E, Irvine, CA 92614. You can also visit our more expansive new main office just across the street at 17802 Sky Park Circle, Suite 108.
