Life is a work
in progress

That's especially true for a child with autism. The biggest difficulty families confront is finding the best treatment for their child from caring, qualified and experienced therapists who possess a deep understanding of this complex disorder.

We're here for you

In addition to Behavior Therapy Clinic’s (BTC's) array of therapeutic services, the clinic offers an environment where parents’ questions about autism are answered in a forthright and clear fashion.


We offer an encouraging atmosphere where families and therapists come together in their goals for both short-term and long-term treatment as well as practical solutions to the behavioral challenges autism often presents.

BTC and your child's development

Wayne Tashjian, MFT, BCBA, founded Behavior Therapy Clinic with the goal of creating an environment of trust and respect for families. Read more about Wayne here.

With over 35 years of experience that began at the UCLA Young Autism Project under the guidance of the late Dr. Ivar Lovaas, Wayne and the Behavior Therapy Clinic, welcome families into an environment of trust and respect. Children work with BTC's team of skilled supervisors and interventionists to reach beyond their perceived limitations so they can have meaningful, loving relationships and lead fulfilling and productive lives.
