Children’s Learning Connection, a division of Pacific Child and Family Associates (PCFA), which specializes in offering services to children with autism and related disabilities and their families, has opened a new office in San Diego.
This office expands CLC’s reach within California. It has operated offices in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas for over 15 years.
“One in 68 children are diagnosed with autism throughout the United States,” says PCFA CEO Jeffrey P. Winter. “We’re pleased to bring our over 15 years of experience helping children with autism improve and progress to all families in San Diego, and look forward to partnering with school systems, physicians and professionals in the area.”
The lead clinician of the San Diego office is Sarah Torgrimson, M.A., BCBA. Torgrimson received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California, Irvine, before completing her Master’s Degree in Psychology from Chapman University in Orange County. Torgrimson is also completing her licensure in Marriage and Family Therapy, and has worked with CLC’s interdisciplinary team for over nine years.
“Sarah has worked in the field of ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) for over 11 years in home, school, and community settings,” says CLC Chief Clinical Officer Gina Chang. “She loves working with children and helping them reach their full potential, and she’ll be a great asset to the San Diego community and allow us to support more families in need.”
CLC currently provides individual behavior therapy in the home, school, and community settings, as well as in clinic social skills groups to children ages 3 and above to address a wide variety of skills. CLC also offers parent training and consultation as well as functional behavior assessments.
