The California Autism Center (CAC) and Learning Group was founded in 2014 with the intent to bring client-focused center-based ABA services to the Central Valley. We want to build a new kind of center and a new kind of hope for families in the community. We have some of the best, brightest and most talented clinicians in the area. We believe that the center-based model is the most effective method for treating children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Like in-home services, the center-based model still allows for individual treatment plans in addition to supplemental home and community-based services as needed. This model also provides more learning opportunities for clients and increased support for staff.
Our mission is to improve lives and build careers while developing the most advanced network of center-based treatment facilities for children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
Our values are positive, perseverance, and teamwork.
