FT services begin with an initial, individualized assessment. During the assessment process, we identify and analyze the client’s skills and areas of deficit. Client goals and treatment plans are person-centered. The frequency of service is determined during the assessment phase.
Individuals who display limited skills in the area of socio-emotional development are good candidates for this program. CBC uses the principles of the DIR/FT model, developed by the late Dr. Greenspan, to teach social interactions, empathy, and other skills necessary to form lasting relationships. The key is to follow the client’s lead and use naturally occurring opportunities as a teachable moment. Services may be provided at one of our offices, in the client’s home, or the client’s local community.
FT services are typically funded by your local Regional Center, though health insurance plans may also cover it. CBC accepts private pay clients.

ABA services are recommended for clients who exhibit problem behavior that affect their daily functioning. By examining the variables associated with the problem behavior, its function is determined. Replacement behaviors are taught to meet the function of the problem behavior. CBC provides Focused ABA Treatment.
Focused ABA Treatment
- Appropriate for individuals who need treatment for a limited amount of key functional skills or who exhibit a major problem behavior and its treatment should be priority.
- Aimed at increasing socially appropriate behaviors, compliance with self-care, and safety skills.
- Teaches primary caregivers to address problem behaviors and teach socially appropriate behaviors or skills.
- The intensity for Focused ABA treatment ranges in the 3-14 hours per week of direct treatment, not including supervision, parent training. The exact frequency depends on the client’s needs.
ABA services are funded by health insurance carriers, if the client has a diagnosis of autism. If the client has a diagnosis other than autism or there is no medical insurance coverage in place, the Regional Center serving your area funds services. There are exceptions to this. Please contact your health insurance plan administrator or your local Regional Center for more information. CBC clients may also pay privately for services.
