Founded in 2004, Center for Behavioral Sciences started with Dr. Joyce C. 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. 

Now, as one of the leading applied behavior analysis (ABA) providers in California, we offer a variety of treatment formats for clients of all ages based upon ABA principles—including one-to-one direct instruction, consultation for caregivers and school staff, social skills groups, as well as individual and group workshop training.  We also offer consulting services to organizations locally and overseas, in places like China and Bahrain.

CBS is always looking for exceptional bachelor level Behavior Technicians and master’s level Behavior Consultants for part- and full-time work.  We strongly emphasize staff training and education, and there are opportunities for advancement.  And it shows:  Our clinical staff have a near 100% pass rate on the BCBA exam, and many have been with us for ten years or more.  At CBS, we invest in our employees and want to see your career grow with us!
