Welcome fall! It is so hard to believe that we are quickly approaching November and the end of the year. We hope that your family is settling into new routines, finding time to enjoy the things most precious to you and looking forward to focusing on all the things for which you are grateful. On our end, we are tremendously grateful for all your support over the past year and the continued opportunity to serve your family and the community. And for those of you who are celebrating Halloween with some fun, socially distanced trick or treating, here are some tips for you to consider.

Autism Services

We are excited to announce that our Field Operations Scheduling (FOS) team will be available to clients across all service lines, including Parent Training and Parent-Led ABA, beginning November 1st. The FOS team completed a pilot of this new service in August, took on the first group of Parent-Led and Parent Training clients in September, and are onboarding our remaining families throughout October. We are excited to provide your family with a dedicated team to handle all your scheduling needs. You can reach the FOS Department at 925-266-8600 or [email protected] to get started.


We are back to in-person services three days per week (Mon/Wed/Fri) and have realized that it is challenging to accommodate a large group of people in a public setting. Given this, we have divided Kaleidoscope participants into two groups—the Explorer Group and The Adventure Group. Both groups will still have the opportunity to interact with each other and have the ability to see their friends/peers. Here is a sample of what a typical week of activities will look like:

  • Monday – Both groups bowling and lunch in the community
  • Wednesday – Explorer Group volunteering/Adventure Group working on life skills
  • Friday – Explorer Group working on life skills/Adventure Group volunteering

Early Intervention (EI)

As you monitor your child’s behavior and development, please reach out to your Regional Center Case Manager if you have any concerns or questions. Your Case Manager can then support the process of accessing additional developmental evaluations that may help to identify any specific treatment options that your child may need.

Occupational therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy and autism evaluations can help identify what may be

going on for your child developmentally and will help you gain therapies and resources to support your child’s development and well-being.

Here is a detailed list of all the resources available to Early Start clients through the Department of Developmental Services.
