Autism Partnership – Making a Difference Since 1994
Every child deserves to thrive, and children with autism should have the opportunity to realize their inherent potential and achieve the highest quality of life possible.
Autism Partnership (AP) a leading international agency that provides APM treatment services for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
Formed in 1994 in the United States, AP is run by professional clinicians and specializes in providing highly individualized one-on-one and group interventions. Drawing on nearly 30 years of experience in progressive ABA and the treatment of ASD, our premium services are well recognized by local and international service agencies and government bodies.
Autism Partnership’s directors started their work together back in the 1970s at the UCLA Young Autism Project. Under the mentorship of Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas, a pioneer in the treatment of Autism, John McEachin, Ronald Leaf, Tracee Parker, Sanford Slater and Andrea Waks learned their profession. They were involved in all aspects of this seminal project, including development of curriculum and behavioral intervention strategies, implementing and supervising treatment, training therapists, teachers and parents, teaching classes and conducting research. While at UCLA, they contributed to seminal works including books, articles, and conference presentations.
In 1994, they formed Autism Partnership to meet the tremendous need for comprehensive services to families with children with autism. Based upon the founders’ extensive and unique experiences in providing behavioral treatment to children, adolescents and adults, Autism Partnership has developed a flexible treatment program that provides a variety of services. Our goal is to build upon the successful foundation of our previous efforts by adapting and reﬁning the treatment and making it more widely available.
AP is run by professional clinicians and has become a worldwide authority for autism spectrum disorder with branch offices in 10 countries. Autism Partnership employs more than 400 outstanding professionals worldwide. They come from various educational disciplines and receive continuously updated training based on ongoing treatment research. With our headquarters in Southern California, Autism Partnership has an international reach with offices in the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, Philippines, Korea, Kuwait, Hong Kong and China.
