Therapy Services

PACE offers ongoing therapy services through our Behavior Therapy Program. We believe that programs should be built around each child’s particular learning style, and blend multiple methodologies that in collaboration provide for the unique needs of the child. Our services are offered at two Bay Area locations, our Faces clinic in Redwood City, at Sunny Days in west San Jose, or in your home. We offer:

Porchlight helping families

  • Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA): A scientifically validated approach to understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment. By assessing the relationship between a targeted behavior and the environment, ABA can be used to change that behavior.
  • Occupational Therapy: Occupational Therapists increase the participation in and performance of daily activities meaningful and useful to the client. Our Occupational Therapists (OT) work on:
    • fine and gross motor skills
    • sensory integration
    • sensory processing disorders
    • attention and regulation
    • oral-motor development
  • Speech Therapy: Speech Therapists evaluate and treat those who are challenged in the areas of speech and language development to help students improve their overall communication skills. The SLP seeks to identify specific communication problems such as articulation, fluency, voice, receptive and expressive language disorders and best ways to treat them. Our Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) assess:
    • speech
    • language skills
    • cognitive and social communication
    • oral motor and feeding skills

PACE offers a morning preschool program in west San Jose, Sunny Days Preschool, and social skills groups at both locations noted below.

Porchlight Webinars

In 2015, the Porchlight Project initiated webinars in order to reach the broader autism community. Our latest webinar, which delved deeper into the Independent Play Skillslearning module, was hosted by Elise Tran, Behavior Therapist. View the recording HERE.

The webinar which focused on the “Planning for the Holidays” learning module hosted by Rebecca Bright, MS, BCBA, LMFT (MFC #52770), can be found here.

Our webinar on the “Creating a Supportive Environment” learning module was hosted by Danielle Borras, OTR/L, CVE. She discussed visuals, sounds and smells that will help you create an optimum space for those living with autism. View the recording of “Creating a Supportive Environment” webinar here.

A webinar based on the “The ABCs of ABA” learning module offered an overview of Applied Behavior Analysis and was presented by Meredith Smith, MS, BCBA. View a recording of “The ABCs of ABA” webinar here.
