Early Intervention

There is no known cure for autism, and thus no “treatment” in the traditional medical sense, but intervention can and does elicit substantial improvement.

Children receive one-on-one attention at our STARS Clinic.A child with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is delayed in their development of language and social interaction skills. Research indicates the need for, and the effectiveness of,early intensive behavioral intervention for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

Many times parents hope that trying some biomedical interventions along with a few hours of speech and language services will help their child overcome his or her developmental delays. This non-intensive approach has been proven to be an ineffective strategy for many children. It is very important to have both educationl and and medical programs working simultaneously. We recommend starting immediately on learning how to teach your child.

At our facility in Walnut Creek, California, Dr. Partiington and the Partington Behavior Analysts team begin the process of intervention with a Learner Profile –- a thorough analysis of your child’s language and learning skills, identify teaching priorities, and provides your family direction and guidance in implementing our teaching procedures.

Parents may assess their children through the ABLLS-R  or WebABLLS tools, and work within a learning program designed by the Partington Behavior Analysts team specifically for your child and family.

Our practices are highly individualized, skill-oriented training sessions targeting social and language skills.
