Pacific Child & Family Associates Opens New San Jose Office

Pacific Child & Family Associates Announces Second Expansion in Two Months to Meet Growing Need for Autism Services

GLENDALE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 17, 2014) - Pacific Child & Family Associates (PCFA), a provider of behavior analysis services for children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities, today announced the opening of their new office in San Jose. The San Jose office is now open and available to provide in-home applied behavior analysis services for children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities in the area.

"Over the past decade, the prevalence of autism diagnosis has grown at a steep rate, and as national providers of care for these individuals, we must grow ourselves to offer the care necessary to help those in need," said Mark Dorenfeld, CEO of PCFA. "With the opening of our new office in San Jose, we are on the path to providing more and more families with care and support, and we are thrilled to be given the opportunity to help support these families."

PCFA provides specialty treatments including Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), using evidence-based techniques, to facilitate significant and sustainable improvement for individuals and families living with autism spectrum disorders. This process involves systematically applying interventions, based upon the principles of learning theory, to improve socially significant behavior to a meaningful degree. A distinguishing characteristic of ABA is the emphasis on the demonstration of the relationship between treatment interventions and socially significant behavioral change.

PCFA has named Patrick Quinn Jung, M.A., BCBA, as Executive Director of the San Jose office. Patrick Jung received his Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from California State University-Hayward and Master's Degree in Education/Best Practices from National University in San Jose. He studied behavior analysis at Florida Institute of Technology, resulting in a Board Certified Behavior Analyst certification. Patrick Jung is also the Executive Director for the company's Redwood Coast and San Ramon offices.

"The population in the San Jose area has undergone dramatic change and growth in recent years, and this is in large part due to the Silicon Valley boom that has drawn families of varying backgrounds from across the globe. With this diverse population, there are unique individuals with autism requiring specialized care to meet their individual and cultural needs," said Patrick Jung, M.A., BCBA, Executive Director of the San Jose PCFA office. "With our new San Jose office, we are equipped to serve as a quality resource and provide cutting edge ABA services to this under-served and rapidly growing population."

The new facility is located at 1885 The Alameda Suite 204, San Jose, CA 95126. PCFA is an in-network provider for most insurance companies. They will also assist in filing claims with any and all insurance companies not in-network. Their goal is to help all, while turning away none.
