What Makes A Happy Family Different From Other Autism Programs in California?

A Happy Family Behavioral Services is the choice for a growing number of clients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Long Beach. Why are we so highly recommended by the autism community?

Our Small Client List Has Many Benefits

We believe that keeping a small client list has many benefits for parents and children with an autism diagnosis. Having fewer clients allows us to conduct comprehensive consultations, during which we’re able to take the time to fully understand your needs and concerns.

A board-certified behavioral analyst (BCBA) takes the detailed information obtained during your consultation to conduct equally comprehensive assessments in your home. The information obtained from these assessments will be used to create a detailed report and treatment plan for your child.

The BCBA can then devote more of their energy, time, and attention to your child. Ultimately, this translates to your child getting the highest-quality experience and one-to-one connection with their BCBA during every session.

Finally, our small client list ensures that no child ever has to be put on a waiting list for treatment.

An Experienced Team That Services and Supports the Whole Family

Our team of BCBAs are highly skilled professionals who continually update their skills. The benefits of continual training are passed along to your child, who receives the latest, most innovative, and most effective ABA therapy available.

In addition to treating your child, A Happy Family BCBAs also hold parent and caregiver training sessions. These sessions teach you instantly applicable skills so that you can continue your child’s special education between sessions.
