About CBS

The philosophy of the Center for Behavioral Sciences, Inc. is to assist individuals with developmental disabilities live in the least restrictive environment and maximize their potential as productive members of society. As such, our primary purpose of the provision of services is to use the least intrusive methodology that enables individuals to live and work in a typical environment. The goals and objectives of the Center for Behavioral Sciences are to address the needs of children and adults with developmental disabilities who exhibit behavioral excesses and deficits that may interfere with learning and impede their quality of life.  Center for Behavioral Sciences, Inc. accomplishes these goals and objectives through functional assessment, one-to-one direct instruction, district/classroom consultation, and parent/caregiver training.

Who We Are:

The Center for Behavioral Sciences is a private non-public agency that provides services to children with autism and other developmental disabilities.  Center for Behavioral Sciences works with school districts, SELPAs, and is vendored with the Regional Centers. In addition, the Center for Behavioral Sciences is provider in the TriCare network to provide services for active duty military personnel who have children with autism.  Center for Behavioral Sciences provides services in the following languages: Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Korean, Tagalog, and American Sign Language.

Our Approach:

Center for Behavioral Sciences employs the latest applied behavior analysis (ABA) findings, including the use of positive programming and verbal behavior in all programs. At the Center for Behavioral Sciences we design individualized programs that are tailored to the needs of the child, their family, school, and community.  Center for Behavioral Sciences works collaboratively with other disciplines to ensure a comprehensive program with ABA as the main treatment methodology. As the child progresses through the different stages of development so do the goals tailored for the child. For example, these goals can range from self-care skills to prevocational skills. CBS is committed to ensuring the unique needs of each individual by employing family participation. Afterall, who knows the child better than a parent? We feel that parents are critical to the success and maintenance of the CBS behavioral programs. All of our programs have a generalization component. This ensures that each goal has a place and purpose in the natural environment and therefore, the behavior will be maintained by that environment across the individual’s lifespan.
