Description

All services provided by California Psychcare are delivered by licensed behavioral health professionals and take place in the client's home, school or elsewhere in the community, so intervention can be built into the client's natural environment. Interventions are delivered one-on-one and developed to meet the specific needs to the child, adolescent, or adult. Services include:

  • Intervention – Early intervention is key for combating the long-term effects of autistic disorder on a developing child or adult. California Psychcare offers several intervention services including:

  • Infant Services Unit - Infants with autism or other developmental disability will need an intervention to ensure they develop their cognitive, social, language, motor and adaptive skills properly. The early infant intervention services will help parents bond more effectively with their infants and toddlers as well as help the infants and toddlers narrow their developmental gaps through structured and unstructured daily interaction.

  • Child Intervention – While autism can be identified by 18 months, the majority of children are diagnosed around 3 years of age or later. This team works closely with parents, schools and pediatricians to develop integrated care for children with autism and their families.

  • Adolescent and Early Adult Intervention – Adolescent and early adult services focus on important issues like sex education, developing social skills needed for intimacy and friendship and teaching skills for a job.

  • Adult Intervention - Adults with autism, or ADHD, can experience anxiety, depression, eating disorders or other mental health disorders. We work with psychiatrists, psychologists, MFT and Social Workers to address any issues that can arise, to the best of our abilities.

  • Behavior Assessment – Offer assessments that are developmentally appropriate for the individual undergoing them. They offer two tracks for conducting assessment: 1) assess the child’s behavior or 2) helping the parents understand autism.

  • Intensive Applied Behavior Analysis Services - The goal of intensive behavioral services is to address any core skill deficits while increasing the social communication abilities of those with autism.

  • Group Home - Group Home services increase the quality of life for adults or children. They offer a positive support plan that aims at reducing problem behaviors by establishing alternate methods that increase functional independence.

  • Tutoring – They can help students with autism who are struggling in school to have better attending skills to complete their assignments in a timely manner.

  • Obesity Clinic - Our Obesity Clinic provides education and support for health and obesity concerns in the autism community. Families are educated on methods and topics like monitoring caloric intake and how to manipulate exercise levels utilizing behavior interventions and tactics
