Infant mental health is the study of mental health as it applies to infants, toddlers, and their families.

Mr. Steven is an Inaugural Member and Board Director of the California Association for Infant Mental Health.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a science based on the use of learning principles to improve lives. The practice of ABA focuses on assessing the environmental influences on behavior, assessment-based intervention, and data-based decision making. ABA has been used to address the behavioral needs of consumers in multiple areas, including general and special education, organizational management and safety, gerontology, and many more. ABA is best known as being the leading evidence-based treatment approach for autism and other developmental disabilities.
Mr. Steven supports families experiencing atypical development indicators by treating the symptoms of pediatric through adolescent developmental disabilities and disorders. He has conducted over 250 behavioral interventions across 3 states for both individual families and public institutions. In recognition of his service to Humboldt County's Latino community as Behavioral Health Board Vice Chairman, he is the recipient of a "May is Mental Health Awareness Month” Community Service Award - 2019.
He serves on the policy committee which informs CalAIMH members of legislative and political issues affecting young children and families. They also support other organizations’ proposed legislation that will promote caregiver-child relational approaches to prevent and heal adversity in young children and families.
