One thought on “CalABA 2017

  1. This is my first year working at Familias First, and it is great to see our agency being represented at CalABA! I think it is definitely a very interesting and important discussion topic. In our field it is so important to support and retain great therapists. They are the ones that see our clients/families the most, and their dedication makes such a huge difference in the clients’ progress. The best ABA agencies are the ones that provide their therapists with the support they need to learn and grow in the field.
