We rely on a foundation of evidenced-based practices and are dedicated to providing personalized care towards an improved quality of life for you and your family.
From the outset of services, CABA staff maintain a consistent focus on the goal of increasing client/family independence as efficiently and effectively possible. You can count on not just being another number with us! We are proud to offer six different service lines including:
Home-Based Behavioral Services
CABA’s Home-Based Behavioral Services are designed to support individuals of all ages diagnosed with neurodevelopment disorders, to reach their fullest potential. A combination of evidenced-based assessment and intervention procedures are used to help increase independence and bridge the identified gap between chronological and functional age across the following domains:
Language/Verbal Behavior · Play/Leisure Skills · Social Skills · Daily Living · Motor Skills
Theory of Mind · Self-Monitoring
Behavior Management · Sex Education
Specialized Therapeutic Services (STS)
CABA was personally selected by the Westside Regional Center (WRC) and Golden Gate Regional Center (GGRC) to launch this new service line designed to support individuals who are at-risk for an inpatient admission due to the severity of their problem behaviors. In partnership with Westside and Golden Gate Regional Centers, CABA’s STS services are designed to support individuals who are at risk for an inpatient hospital admission or other more restrictive placement due to the severity of their problem behaviors. Problem behaviors may include, but are not limited to, property destruction, inappropriate language, aggression, and self-injurious behavior.
Services are designed to be delivered up to 24 hours per day, 7 days per week; the frequency and duration of support is based on the individual needs of the client and his/her caregivers.
All sessions are scheduled in coordination with the individuals current scheduled supports, including primary caregivers in the home setting, Supported Living Services, Day Programs, etc..
The primary purpose of STS is to ensure that all caregivers are equipped with the necessary training to ensure client success.
School-Based Behavioral Services
Behavioral Services in the school setting offer positive behavioral assessment and intervention services, including Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA’s), the development and implementation of Behavioral Intervention Plans (BIP's) and the provision of individual support services to assist students with decreasing problem behaviors, increasing functional replacement behaviors (i.e. language, socialization, etc.) in order to more effectively access the general curriculum in place for the student as defined through the IEP process.
The primary goal of Social Skills is to provide support toward reaching a developmentally appropriate level of social competency such that each individual/family leaving our program is able to have a greater quality of life. Small groups, clustered according to age range, are conducted on a weekly basis in the community setting. Group meetings are designed to directly teach certain essential social skills such as:
How to make a good first impression
How to join a group of others
How to handle rejection, teasing and bullying
How to be a good sport
How to show respect to adult supervisors
Enhanced Behavioral Support Homes (EBSH)
In partnership with WRC and the Southern California Integrated Health and Living Project, CABA is developing two Enhanced Behavioral Support Homes intended to serve up to three residents each, whom require 24- hour non-medical care in a homelike setting due to severely challenging behavior. The EBSH service line provides residents with the least restrictive placement while providing access to the community and support to lead an integrated life. The homes will focus on a behavioral approach while providing care to its residents and will target areas such as:
Daily Living Skills · Community Integration
We currently support the following regions: Los Angeles, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo Counties. Consultation services are also available across the US.
Adult Day and Individualized Services
CABA’s Adult Day and Individualized Services are offered 7 days a week and specialize in, but are not limited to, working with clients with challenging behaviors. The service line seeks to integrate clients into the community while focusing on individual needs and aspirations.
CABA strives to identify goals and specific service plans which are based on the results of our comprehensive assessment process to maximize client direction of services and increase the client’s ability to lead an integrated and inclusive life.
Positive behavior support plans are developed to address any potential challenging behaviors that may impede success. In addition, potential skill deficits are addressed to support each client achieve their goals. Teaching strategies are used in the natural setting, and may include a combination of visual supports, modeling, role play, feedback, and positive reinforcement based systems. The program focuses on the following areas:
Employment and Volunteer Placement
Leading an Integrated and Inclusive Life
