Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 05, 2011

Special Learning, Inc., an online comprehensive Autism solutions company, today announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with Step By Step Academy (SBSA), a highly regarded Autism treatment center in Columbus, Ohio.

Autism is quickly becoming one of the most prevalent disorders affecting children. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, 2010), Autism affects 1 in 110 children in the United States alone. Various research articles estimate growth rates of 10 to 17% annually, which means Autism is reaching epidemic proportions.

While the need for effective Autism products and services continue to grow, there is a critical shortage of information, tools and therapeutic solutions available to families affected by ASD. Global standards for interventions and consistent delivery of therapies are not yet established, while the rapidly increasing number of diagnosed children is already exceeding the supply of qualified providers trained in effectively teaching critical life skills to children with ASD.

This issue of the shortage and lack of access to qualified behavior therapists and educators is the problem that Special Learning is solving with support from its exceptional network of industry partners. By partnering with SBSA and strategically leveraging their clinical expertise, Special Learning will continue to create Autism solutions firmly grounded in ABA, supported by ongoing research and clinical application.

Special Learning and SBSA are very excited about this partnership and their ability to rapidly develop ABA Solutions to positively impact the lives of people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) across the globe.

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
