About the Owner/CEO

My professional experience includes five years of working with autistic children to improve their independence and skills in communication, adaptive, behavioral, and social development. I have 11 years of experience in a Healthcare setting as a Certified Medical Assistant at Stanford Health, including five years in a pediatric setting in Sutter Health. I completed my graduate degree at Arizona State University's Applied Behavior Analysis program and post-graduate diploma at Johns Hopkin's Autism and Other Pervasive Developmental Disorders  Education.
 

As a mother of 3 children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), my ultimate goal is to build a residential care home for my loved ones and community members with special needs. Before I pass, I want to reassure those I leave behind will have a safe place to call home, where their needs will receive the best care.

I am currently in my 3rd year in the doctoral program at the University of the Pacific’s Transformative Action in Education where I research equality, equity, and inclusion in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

    Background and History of the Company:

    Mylestones LLC was established in July 2022 by Nina Boling who is a Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA). The founder felt the need for early intervention and  Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to provide high quality service for the children of San Joaquin county, and incorporate more caregiver training and navigational information.. They have been working with the autistic and developmentally disabled children since 2014. Nina has ten years of experience in the field, as well as her own personal experience with three of her children being diagnosed with ASD. The founder has submitted the proposal to the local regional center, Valley Mountain Regional Center (VMRC). 

     

    The name Mylestones derives from the name of Nina's son Myles and epitomizes the word "milestone" meaning an act or event that causes a significant change or symbolizes an important stage of decline. Myles benefited greatly from his early interventions and lecture activities, the impact of which is evident throughout his life. He proactively received early intervention services by spotting signs of delay, and his active participation in all training significantly improved the well-being of his family as a whole. In parallel, Mylestones strives to increase understanding, awareness, commitment to service, and resilience to challenges within the company, working together toward achievable life-enhancing goals for the company and families. 

    Mylestones LLC aims to help children in San Joaquin County reach their fullest potential or help them catch up to their age-appropriate milestones. In most cases, children will be encouraged to improve in all areas of development including cognitive, receptive communication, expressive communication, social, behavioral, adaptive, gross motor, and fine motor domains. The expected outcome of service is improvement and increase in all domains of at least 5% more based on the accepted measurement tool deemed by the Valley Mountain Regional Center (VMRC). 

    Company Mission: Mylestones’ mission is to empower, honor, and enrich every child as we support them in reaching their potential through ethical, evidence-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles.

     

    Company Vision: Mylestones will lead the transformation of the ABA therapy and achieve the highest level of quality care for the children of San Joaquin county.

    Entrance Criteria:

    The potential client/ children must first contact Valley Mountain Regional Center to gain eligibility through their intake process. Once services are approved by the regional center, a referral will be sent to Mylestones. Children will be eligible for services as deemed by Valley Mountain Regional Center. 

    The following criteria must be met:

    • The child must be less than 36 months of age, to be referred to the service. 

    • An overall delay in all areas will be considered qualified or a referral from the VMRC will be considered. 

    Mylestones will contact the family and start the process of scheduling an assessment, observation, report writing, and submission. After the assessment and report review, the IFSP team will review recommendations from the assessment and determine appropriate service hours.

    Exit Criteria:

    • First, an IFSP meeting is required to process the program termination. It is also required for any changes or prior to the end of Early Start services. 

    • If the child has mastered all the developmental goals, program termination will be discussed. 

    • Poor attendance and frequent no-shows will also result in the termination of the program. The Service Coordinator will be notified when the consumer has missed two appointments. An IFSP meeting will be held to determine if it is appropriate to terminate services. 

    • If the parents/ parent decline services, program termination will be processed after notifying the service coordinator. 

    • If the IFSP team agrees that services are no longer needed, an exit process will be started. 

    • Finally, once the child turns 3 years of age, an EXIT IFSP meeting will be held to conclude the case.
