Welcome to Behavioral Support Partnership

ABA Services in Orange and LA Counties

Our Mission

Our goal is to improve the quality of life for families by building skills, facilitating inclusion, ameliorating challenging behaviors and empowering parents. At Behavioral Support Partnership, we believe that each family has a unique story and therefore deserves an individualized approach to ABA treatment.  Parent involvement is the key to enduring change and thus our “partnership” with families is critical to our  mission.

Behavioral Support Partnership provides individualized assessments and proven, data driven interventions to meet the unique needs of each child and his/her family. We support individuals from one year of age through adulthood who face the challenge of autism and other developmental disabilities.

Sujin Kwack joined BSP in January 2022 as a Behavior Therapist. Prior to moving to the US with her husband and 12-year-old son, Sujin worked as a play therapist for 15 years in Korea and was certified as a Developmental Psychologist. She was half-way through her doctorate program in Developmental Psychology prior to her move.

In her career search in California, Sujin discovered ABA. She was excited to learn more about children with emotional and behavioral problems. She feels truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with BSP and staff who are kind and enthusiastic. Her favorite part of ABA is learning to communicate with each of our unique kids.
