In 2008, BCBA Andrea Macken came to a life-changing realization: if she truly wanted to help these families transform a diagnosis of autism into an opportunity for hope, she would need to do it the right way – her way – from a place of genuine compassion, joy, as well as clinical expertise. With her husband, Andi and Chris founded Comprehensive Autism Center on a personal commitment to help not just children, but whole families navigate the complexities and chaos that comes with a diagnosis of autism, and rediscover the joy and playfulness of growing together in childhood.
Today, CAC operates three centers that provide a hybrid program that may include in-center and in-home Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for families living with autism, located across Southern California. Our programs are designed to teach the critical skills children need to lead productive and happy lives. We also offer a full range of services including training, tools and coordinated care to guide families through their journey.
Our goal is to help children develop the skills they need to thrive in a variety of settings beyond the center and the home. To support this goal, we provide opportunities for children with autism to interact with their neuro-typical peers and with the community at large. CAC has fostered community partnership with local non-profits, city chambers, and military family service programs.
