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.
CBS is one of the few behavior analysis agencies in California offering FAAs. This approach to assessment and treatment has been hailed as one of the most significant advancements in behavior analysis in 30 years, and it is the modern standard for both clinical research and practice. We’re thrilled to be able to serve our communities even better than before!
Our new main office will also be the primary location for CBS’ upcoming social skills groups, also beginning in September! 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. We love making a difference in our clients’ lives!
With all of the focus on center-based programs, you might ask, why center-based? Although both home- and center-based programs can be effective depending on the circumstances, recent research suggests that those receiving center-based services demonstrate higher rates of learning. (Dixon, et al., 2017.) More information about the advantages of specialized center-based programs is available from the Association for Science in Autism Treatment.
