Special Learning, Inc. Partners with Autism Training Solutions to Develop Evidence-based Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Solutions


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 25, 2011

Special Learning, Inc., a comprehensive autism solutions company, today announced its collaboration with Autism Training Solutions (ATS), a leader in evidence-based eLearning and training solutions. By leveraging the combined expertise of Special Learning and ATS, they will develop best-of-breed evidence-based technology products and solutions, including eBooks, web tools, and mobile apps in the area of Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis.

Autism is quickly becoming one of the most prevalent disorders affecting children. As recently as 2001, the National Institute of Health estimated that 1 in 250 children were affected by Autism. But according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Autism has increased to an alarming rate of 1 in 110. Various researches estimate growth of 10 to 17% annually, which means autism is reaching epidemic proportions, leaving the market with an acute shortage of qualified therapists that are essential in the application of the right and timely interventions. Special Learning, along with its strategic partners, develops ABA products and solutions that allow parents to easily and intuitively participate in delivering ABA interventions in partnership with their behavior analysts and other experts.

Planned products include comprehensive ABA eLearning Curriculum that incorporates online training videos with embedded curriculum to teach parents, providers, and educators to accurately and effectively teach new skills using proper application of ABA principles.
