HIGH DEMAND: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is the fastest-growing developmental disorder in the US, and demand for ASD care is increasing significantly.

In the last 20 years, Autism prevalence in the US has increased by more than 200%. Currently, the CDC estimates that 2.5% of U.S. children have autism.

LOW COMPETITION: The number of new treatment facilities has not kept up with demand, creating a shortage of providers in the market. The per capita supply of certified ABA facilities falls below the benchmark in 49 states. Specifically, no state has more than one-third of the minimum number of ABA providers needed to meet the needs of the number of children with autism. Providers report average waitlists of 6 months – 1 year. As per a market study done by Fortune Business Insights, Success On The Spectrum is listed as a key player in the ABA industry.

SOCIAL ACCEPTANCE OF TREATMENT: In the past, a social stigma was associated with therapy and often deterred people from seeking treatment. This has changed in recent years due to social influence (especially from celebrities) and increased awareness. Therapy is no longer something that people are ashamed of.

FAVORABLE GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS:  Since 2007, the federal government mandates publicly-funded health insurance plans to cover ABA therapy in children with Autism. Since 2014, the Affordable Care Act covers ABA therapy as an essential health benefit up to age 25 years old.

The IDEA Act requires public schools to make appropriate accommodations for individuals with special needs. School based services are also required under the integration mandate of the Americans with Disabilities Act. According to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, a school that refuses to accommodate an ABA provider on campus is discriminating against a child who has a disability.

CRISIS RESISTANT: The government has defined ABA Therapy as a medically necessary service. During COVID lock-down, ABA Therapy centers were allowed to remain open.

In addition, ABA Therapy is paid for by medical health insurance and state medicaid. During economic recessions, the revenue generated from ABA Therapy is generally unaffected.

LONG RANGE CARE: ASD is a life-long diagnosis, and requires intervention throughout a person’s life for best outcomes. The typical SOS client receives 40 hours or therapy per week and remains in the program for 3-5 years.
