Review for Easter Seal Society Of The Bay Area, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity : I served ESBA as a clinical supervisor for five wonderful Early Interventionists who provided service to a significant number of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The dedicated and hardworking staff showed their mettle daily with constant attention to improving themselves and understanding their clients. Each of them earned the highest marks in their reviews in the areas of self improvement and service delivery and the children they served improved considerably under their care. We offered individual therapy based on the Easrly Start Denver Model, an ABA and developmentally based therapy that was studied to be effective consistently, most recently by the University of Washington in 2009. Children who get this type of treatment improve in the areas of communication, relation to others, motor skills, social skills, and other areas impacted by ASD and PDD. The data systems used offer parents excellent ideas of their children's improvement, and the service provided really shows how well children can do when the right type of education is offered.

Review for Pacific Autism Center For Education (Pace), Santa Clara, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who had the pleasure and honor to volunteer for PACE during the summer of 2010. The organization was an incredible one to volunteer for. Their mindset toward the treatment of children was realistic and natural while the wonderfully patient individuals on staff were helpful and understanding. It was an honor for me to gift my knowledge of the behavioral practice toward the formalization of their clinical practice, and any parent who has concerns that their child be given evidence based education will be pleasantly satisfied with the work and the data collected here. Perhaps most importantly, parents whose concerns include their child's future ability to relate will be more than satisfied with the model of therapy offered at PACE. Their organized delivery of relational, developmental, and behavioral therapy embedded in a full inclusion environment is a model for successful education of children with ASDs and neurotypical children alike. Best of luck in the future, PACE, and thank you for allowing me to help!
