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.
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.
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.
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.
Dr. Joyce Tu, Ed.D., BCBA-D, Director of Center for Behavioral Sciences was an invited lecturer again this week, at Pepperdine University’s Irvine Graduate Campus. Dr. Tu’s presentation was entitled “A Brief Introduction to Effective ABA Programs for Individuals with Autism,” for a class of future clinical psychologists. This provided an overview of ABA and best practices in clinical settings. It is always great to work with a new group of future practitioners, ready to improve lives!
On March 9, 2018, CBS’ Director Dr. Joyce Tu, along with CBS’ Assistant Director Ronald Moreno, Clinical Manager Alex Silva, and behavior consultant Angie Montero presented two original behavior analytic research studies in a poster session, as part of the California Association for Applied Behavior Analysis 36th Annual Western Regional Conference in Santa Clara. The studies are entitled “Teaching Metaphorical Tacts to Individuals Diagnosed with Autism,” and “Teaching Autoclitic Responses to Children Diagnosed with Autism.” CBS is proud of its ongoing contributions to the field of applied behavior analysis, and we are grateful to all study participants.
