No no one has called and left a voicemail on the mothers phone.The receptionist also had my number grandmother and I havent received a call either.Left messagescalled several times. Finally after calling for a few days a gal answered. I explained situation and childs behavior. Family is in crisis. Child is out of control eloping. Young lady said shed discuss with her supervisor and call back tomorrow. NEVER CALLED BSCK RUDE AND UNPROFESSIONAL TO LEAVE A FAMILY WHOS IN CRISIS AND SEEKING HELP IN HOW TO HELP THEIR CHILD HANGING WITH NO CALL BACK. NOT EVEN TO SAY SORRY WE ARE BOOKED BUT HERE ARE SOME RESOURCES. OR WE HAVE YOU ON WAITLIST AND IN THE MEANTIME HERE ARE SOME RESOURCES To not CALL BACK IS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL Disappointing for a place thats supposed to be helping children and families.

My experiences with CVL have been amazing. My child was diagnosed at age 7. At an autism event I met some of the staff and I have been with them now for 7 years. The changes that my child made were so significant. They have been the most supportive and knowledgeable organization that I have ever worked with. My son is able to communicate more effectively and that has built up his own personal self esteem. There have been several professionals that through the years have pointed out what my child would never be able to do. With CVL he has met all of those targets. I am truly grateful for the BCBA and director who have changed me for the better. They are the best in the valley and I highly recommend

I had my child with CVL for nearly a year doing a combination of in home and in office sessions. They decided to change our sessions for my THREE year old to be zoom sessions instead of in clinic or in home. I protested and we went around for a bit until I decided to pull my child out. In the time I was with them they had a lot of turn over and we went through at least 4 therapist. Finally a few months after leaving the company they sent me a bill for over 1000. The reason was that I didnt have something completed for them to send off which was not true. After 3 calls to different insurance departments and 2 hours later my insurance company let me know that it was in fact their fault that the paperwork was not completed and that the insurance had reached out to them several times with letters to me which i forwarded to them via telephone messages to the owner whom we never met and to the company as well. Finally my insurance agreed to pay the claims if they got paper work in on time so that was nice for me but if not they would have tried to require me to pay for something that was not my fault.Jesse who was one of our therapists was very consistent and on top of his stuff and we really loved having him in our home. I do not recommend this company to anyone with children needing intense therapy.

If you read the reviews you will notice there are at least 5 that were all given at the same time this is most likely due to clients parents employees pressured to give a good review. I wouldnt really rely on these. The company at first did my family and I good with my child but that only lasted maybe 2 weeks. The owner of the company Stephanie Rosales is extremely rude and obnoxious for whatever reason she believes her time is more important than any of her parents. She throws all the dirty work on her therapists and her supervisors. The parent trainings are very extensive and non informative. They make you feel like your questions are dumb. Also they do not care about your schedule if you have to cancel they try to guilt trip you. The company according to several therapist is just overall of terrible and they pay is so low for them considering the work they do. Many complain about how little these people care about their clients but also their staff. ABA is better elsewhere dont waste your time at this company. Easy Speech Kyo HCA and even Desert Arc is better than this company.

Stephanie was wonderful and walked us through every single step. My daughter graduated became of her help. We were able to successfully help her through fishing school and feeling proud and accomplished.

Worst company in the world. The owner Stephanie gives up on children easily. Is rude. There is a global pandemic and I have never in my life met someone so inconsiderate and rude.
