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.
Autism’s Weaknesses & Strengths
By Astrid Liddel
Autism, depression and anxiety can make life very difficult. Often, I find it hard just to get out of bed and get dressed. Not everything is hard for people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), though. In this post, I will be discussing some of the things that come (and don’t come) easily and why.
We’re excited to announce that CBS is expanding and relocating its Inland Training Center to better serve our staff and clients! We’re opening a new, larger location on August 1, 2018, in the heart of the Inland Empire — Rancho Cucamonga. The new Inland Training Center is at 9431 Haven Ave, Suite 112, convenient to the 10 and 15 freeways. This office is primarily for new client intake and consultation, recruiting and staff training.
Last week for the second consecutive year, Dr. Joyce Tu, Ed.D., BCBA-D, founder and Director of Center for Behavioral Sciences, and CBS Behavior Consultant Coco Liu, M.A., traveled to China for 10 days to share the science of behavior analysis. CBS lectured and presented a series of workshops on topics in behavior analysis for over 250 special education teachers in Beijing, Taiyuan and other major Chinese cities.

In 2011, Senate Bill 946 mandated that all health insurers in the State of California provide coverage for Behavioral Health Treatment (BHT) services, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), for all individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis regardless of age. ABA was finally recognized as a medically necessary treatment for individuals with ASD! In July 2014, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) received federal approval to provide BHT services as a Medi-Cal benefit for individuals under the age of 21 with an ASD diagnosis.
