This past May, Autism Spectrum Therapies (AST) relocated and opened a new Learning Center in San Gabriel, California, offering compassionate contemporary applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy to children with autism in a center-based environment. Since 2001, AST has served the greater Los Angeles and San Gabriel communities through early intervention and ABA therapy in home-based settings and in partnership with schools.
The new San Gabriel Learning Center gives families who cannot access services in the home an option for their child to receive therapy in a safe, supportive, and learning-rich atmosphere. AST’s center-based services help children with autism learn the necessary skills to develop confidence and build friendships in a social setting. The San Gabriel Learning Center is currently enrolling preschool-aged children for daytime ABA services.
The Learning Center also offers seasonal social skills programs where children can participate in serious fun and serious learning alongside their peers. This July, the San Gabriel Learning Center will run it’s annual “Around the World Camp,” where students take a journey “around the world” with peers while enjoying arts and crafts featuring animals, flags, food, landmarks, maps, and more. Social skills programs give each child one-to-one support in a group setting while working on socialization, communication, and other skills that assist with growth and learning.
To celebrate the opening of our new Learning Center, we hosted an open house where the public and families were invited to visit our new facility, speak with our leadership team, and participate in a range of fun, carnival-themed activities. It was an enjoyable occasion that brought together the local autism community in San Gabriel and southern California. The event also featured an official ribbon-cutting ceremony presented by the San Gabriel Chamber of Commerce. Frank F. Lu, Field Deputy/AAPI Liaison, was also in attendance on behalf of Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L Solis’ office. We could not be more thankful for the warm welcome and support from the local business community and city officials. Our southern California team looks forward to serving the greater San Gabriel community for many years to come and is honored to nurture the unique potential in children with autism.
AST has proudly served families throughout California for 20 years and counting. We understand that every child has individual needs and interests, and we’re committed to providing tailored treatment that respects the unique needs, values, and cultures of every family we’re fortunate to help. Providing exceptional care and bringing positive outcomes for all children and families we serve is at the core of what we do at AST. We are steadfast in our mission of finding success for every child in our care through compassionate, contemporary ABA therapy.
AST offers ABA therapy in its Learning Centers, client homes, and school-based settings, as well as social skills, speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, and diagnostic services in various locations across eight states from California to Louisiana.
