NEW YORK, July 12, 2021 — Autism Care Partners is excited to announce the acquisition of Autism Bridges– a founder-led, New Hampshire based multi-state autism treatment organization. With this acquisition, Autism Care Partners (“ACP” or “the Company”) will represent one of the most clinically forward and regionally dense providers of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and related behavioral therapies in the Northeast.
“Joining our companies together to spread clinical excellence, serve more families and demonstrate clinical and cost outcomes is what drives our excitement about this partnership. Early in our discussions, both organizations realized how aligned our missions are. I’m eager to start working with the Bridges team to accelerate the delivery of evidence-based autism services throughout the Northeast. Bridge’s commitment to clinical excellence coupled with the provision of data-driven, comprehensive, and customized treatment is the perfect complement to ACP’s family of behavioral care companies,” said Jim Spink, CEO of ACP.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) now estimates that one in 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with ASD by the age of eight resulting in unprecedented access to care challenges. To address the lack of access and often uncoordinated care needs of the autism community, ACP is focused on ensuring “no wrong door” to individuals on the spectrum and their families by providing and coordinating ABA, diagnostic and related services across diverse care settings including home, school, telehealth, and state-of-the-art treatment centers.
“Ever since I founded Bridges 14 years ago, I’ve been focused on giving our clients the absolute best chance at gaining the skills needed to live happy, productive lives and restoring hope to their families by implementing high-quality ABA treatment. With the incredible resources and breadth of services that ACP brings to the table such as diagnostic evaluations, speech and language services to name a few. I’m even more excited about the life-changing impact we can have on the future of our clients and their families,” said Thea Davis, Founder of Autism Bridges.
