Services

CBC provides comprehensive, individualized services, in the client’s home, local community, and at our center-based clinic. By serving clients in various settings, they are able to practice skills in the most natural environment. CBC also offers consulting services in a 1:1 basis, and to larger parties, such as parent groups, funding sources, and private pay clients.

Our Services

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.

A referral to the SSTP begins 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 services is determined during the assessment phase.

Clients through the SSTP show difficulty in one or more of the following areas: recognizing and understanding social cues, perspective-taking, initiating and maintaining social interactions, conversation skills, making and keeping friendships, and difficulty “fitting in” social situations. The list represents key areas, but is not exhaustive. The SSTP curriculum is unique, as it incorporates critical aspects of leading treatment models, such as Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking, Dr. Greenspan’s DIR/Floortine model, Carol Gray’s Social Stories, and behavior analysis interventions. The different settings in which services can be provided are referred to as Phases. The Phases are fluid, meaning a client may receive a portion of services in one or more settings simultaneously, such as at home and in a community recreational center. Clients who exhibit problem behaviors that require ongoing intervention and supervision are not good candidates for the SSTP. Instead, these individuals should consider other precursory services, such as CBC’s ABA or FT services. Once behavior issues have been effectively addressed, the client can seek an SSTP assessment.

Social Skills services are funded by health insurance carriers, if the client has a diagnosis of autism. If the client has another diagnosis or the client has no medical insurance coverage, the Regional Center serving your area may fund 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 provided by the SSTP.

A referral to our ABA program is followed by 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 services is determined during the assessment phase.

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.

A referral to the IDP starts with the initial, individualized assessment process.  During the assessment, the client’s needs are indentified.  All treatment plans are individualized and person centered.  The frequency of services is determined during the assessment phase.

Our Infant Development Program serves infants and toddlers with an established Early Start Eligibility, or who are at risk for developing a disability.  The program is appropriate for clients under 36 months of age who require specialized focus and stimulation in one or more of the following developmental areas:

  • Cognitive
  • Language
  • Motor Skills (fine and gross)
  • Social-Emotional
  • Self-Help

CBC’s primary goal of services is to provide the infant with support that will enable him or her to master successive developmental tasks and approach a chronological age level of functioning.  A secondary goal is to teach parents how to use daily routines and activities as opportunities to stimulate developmental growth.
