The FirstSteps for Kids, Inc. (West Los Angeles) Difference
We are Person-Centered and always Compassionate
ABA is a scientific approach to learning with a focus on factors that motivate, reinforce, and maintain human behavior. FirstSteps adds heart to our science.
Your child is our priority, and we want them to have a say in their own learning. We will honor their opinions and celebrate that they have them. From what we teach to how, we will attend to your child's non-verbal and expressed preferences and will always ask, not tell.
We are person-centered in all we do; we design interventions that our kids enjoy and value. We want to show them easier ways to express their needs and wants, and to choose to try something new when their past behavior has caused them more trial than triumph.
We Celebrate Diversity
We value diversity, equity, and inclusivity in all aspects of our treatment model, in our service delivery with our clients, in collaboration with families and communities, and in our organizational culture and practices with our staff.
We Contribute to the Behavior Analytic Community
Members of our leadership team regularly serve on the Board of Directors for state and national associations, are invited speakers at local, state, and national events, and present clinical research at conferencs throughout the world. We are also an approved practicum site for many graduate school programs and provide supervision for our BCBA candidates. FirstSteps is also an approved Authorized Continuing Education (ACE) provider for the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) and a proud member of the Council of Autism Service Providers (CASP).We are person-centered and always compassionate
We Live by an "Always Be Learning" Mentality

We are invested in our team, with ongoing learning opportunities provided throughout every year of employment and in every position. We know that your child’s treatment success depends on the expertise of our team and that drives us to continually innovate, share ideas, study the impact of our interventions, document those successes for the larger behavior analytic community, pursue advanced degrees, and even establish a new master’s degree program at a top ten university in the country. We don’t just hire for positions; We hire for careers. That is how expertise develops and infuses the high-quality intervention your child will receive at FirstSteps.
