CSD’s people and programs deliver personalized, professional, evidence-based behavioral and developmental services to each participant, and peace of mind to caregivers that their loved ones are in the right hands and are receiving the best possible care. With the understanding that every person is different and requires different services, CSD is committed to:
Who We Are
The Center for Social Dynamics (CSD) is an organization providing services to those with developmental delays, including autism, in the state of California and Oregon.
We have a commitment to:
• Rapid responding to evolving child and parent needs.
• Cultural sensitivity to family values and generational dynamics.
• A multi-disciplinary approach to evidence-based methods.
• Creative play in a Natural Learning Environment and structured Intensive Teaching.
CSD’s Mission is to enable every individual to reach his or her full potential by providing programs that will develop new skills and concepts to maximize their ability to learn within their natural environments, and to empower families by providing supportive coaching and behavior management.
CSD’s Vision is to deliver the best and most personalized, innovative solutions possible for each individual and caregiver affected by autism or other disabilities and to foster a strong culture of community participation and inclusion.
About 1 percent of the world population has autism spectrum disorder.
Prevalence has increased by about 10 percent each year from 2002 to 2010.
Cost of lifelong care can be reduced by 66 percent with early diagnosis and intervention.
