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.
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.
No School….What to Do?
A Few Simple Ways to Beat Boredom and Prevent Behavior Problems
Now that the excitement of the holidays has subsided, it is now December 26th and you, or rather, the kids have at least one week of NO SCHOOL! The thought of entertaining the kids throughout an entire day can be daunting. The best way to combat this stress is to arm yourself with a bag full of activities. This may mean you need to fight the crowds and head to your local craft store, or limit play with the new toys that Santa has delivered so they can be incorporated as a new activity during the week. As you would plan out your meals if you were on a diet, you can plan your activities for the days ahead and be prepared.
