Learning ARTS is a company dedicated to the care of children within the autism spectrum. Formed in 1997 by Dr. Will and Lara Brandon, Learning ARTS has operated under two principles: help those with autism, and provide a career path for those individuals who provide these services. Our approach to intervention is a family and community based one formed on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. We believe that everyone has potential and that Learning ARTS can assist in meeting that potential.
We are dedicated to evidence-based interventions, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and continually strive to be a leader in the development of the field. Learning ARTS actively participates in the academic, community, and political development of our field. We pride ourselves on keeping up to date with any issues and research that could impact a family’s intervention.
Learning ARTS is a preferred provider with over 20 different funding/insurance agencies, including Medi-Cal and Medicaid; and provide services though most of Northern/Central California. Our staff includes caregivers, interventionists, and care coordinators that can help families access services sooner and ensure continued-quality services.
