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.
Making Sense of Autism:
A Personal Perspective
By Astrid Liddel
My name is Astrid Liddel, and I have autism. You probably have lots of ideas about what I might be like, just by seeing the word ‘autism’ in conjunction with my name. Some of those ideas might have some truth to them, while others might not. So I will tell you about myself so you can see what I am actually like. Hopefully, this will inspire you to see autistic people in a different light.
We are excited to announce that CBS will open a new location on June 15, 2018, in San Diego! Located at 4025 Camino Del Rio South, Suite 300 in Mission Valley, the San Diego Training Center is on the south side of Interstate 8 and one block east of Interstate 15 — about 8 miles from downtown. It is CBS’ third physical location and is for recruiting and staff training only.
