I just wanted to express my thanks to all of you.  Our experience with Autism Behavior Services Inc has been a FANTASTIC one!  Your Nor Cal team rocks and we appreciate each of the providers.  Your team is trained, professional, on time, supportive and caring!  All the things one would expect but rarely find in the current ABA climate. Your company is doing things right and my kiddo is making progress because of it.


This company has helped my son grow! Thank you for your continued services and all the hard work you do.

I have been working with this company for over three years and have been more than happy with them. I have two boys with ASD and Rosa Patterson and her team of amazing supervisors and BI’s have made a huge impact on both of their lives. I have endless amounts of positive things to say about this company. I have had experience with other companies as well as many friends who work with other companies and nothing compares to the individual attention they give the children here.

Fantastic staff, outstanding knowledge and care for special needs individuals. Helped my son after years of trying to get the school district to acknowledge my son’s special needs by attending his IEP and advocating for him. ABS at home and social skills group at their office has helped our family tremendously.

Mike is a fantastic guy and you can clearly see he loves his job.  Always goes above and beyond with our child.  Highly recommended!

Michael is by far the best in occupational therapy around.  He is very knowledgeable and understands the challenges with a special needs child.  My son looks forward to every visit with him, and I have already seen so much progress since he has begun.  I would highly recommend Michael for OT.


Rosa has worked with my daughter for 13 years. She has always been there for not only her, but for our family as well. She has helped us through the many struggles we have faced raising a special needs child. I don’t know what we would have done without her! Her staff is great with the kids and are always willing to help. I can’t say enough about Rosa and her company.

I can’t  give Autism Behavior Services and Rosa Patterson enough stars. She was a life saver when I was at my wits end with my daughter. I was in tears daily. Autism Behavior Services was a great support system and put a plan in place very quickly.  I was with the agency for 2 years and was devastated when we moved  and had to go with another agency.  I have had experience with other agencies and that is why I can say Autism Behavior Services is the best! Rosa makes sure her staff is educated and well trained before entering your home. Other agencies DO NOT at least the ones I have dealt with.  We had 15 hours in home therapy and attended the social group once a week.  The program was flexible and ever changing to make sure my daughter was  learning coping skills in every situation. Rosa even had an attorney come into the office and had an education night for the parents on our rights for IEPs. She attended my daughter’s IEP meetings and coached me in what to demand for my daughter. This gave me confidence to face the table of school officials when fighting for my daughter’s resources in school. Rosa truly cares about the children and their progress. As one parent to another go with this agency. You will not be disappointed.

Autism Behavior Services, Inc. (ABSI) is an agency administered and staffed by highly competent, well-trained behavior intervention staff, who have a high level of demonstrated success in working with children with autism and pervasive developmental disorders.

In my experience as both a special education director and behavior analyst, ABSI is a highly ethical agency that collaborates closely with school districts, and values quality of services over quantity. The agency director received much of her training and experience in both private and educational settings, and this perspective can be seen in the way that ABSI staff work together with school staff and families in a team-oriented format that is not often replicated at other agencies. I would highly recommend that ABSI be considered for providing applied behavior analysis services.

How fortunate we are to have Rosa Patterson and her highly-trained team of behavior staff to help our children- With this kind of early intervention, we are able to see great gains in behavior, communication, and especially perseveration issues. It is very reassuring to know that so many children will be able to successfully mainstream due to the services provided by Rosa and her wonderful team at Autism Behavior Services, Inc.

Rosa Patterson helped me survive school.

Rosa Patterson changed our family’s life, not just our daughter’s. Rosa made sure our daughter received all the services she needed and put everything into place. The improvement our daughter has made over the past 7 years under Rosa’s guidance and expertise is unbelievable. I don’t know where we would be without her!
