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, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and Hawaii.
We were founded in 2012 after the passage of the Autism Insurance Law in California. Since then, all 50 U.S. states have passed similar legislation requiring health care service plans contracts and insurance policies to provide coverage for behavioral health treatment for individuals with autism or other developmental diagnoses. Today, CSD is focused on expanding and continuing to deliver personalized, family-based and culturally sensitive treatment, and on achieving evidence-based positive outcomes for autism patients in our home communities and beyond.
CSD’s Mission is to open a world of possibilities for those with Autism and other developmental needs through science, compassion, and humility.
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.
