To meet the growing need for autism services across the country, Hopebridge Autism Therapy Centers, one of the largest autism therapy networks in the nation, is expanding its innovative interdisciplinary care with six new Denver area locations starting in October 2020.
By blending evidence-backed interventions like ABA therapy with other essential services in a center-based atmosphere, Hopebridge is able to provide a wide range of benefits to Colorado’s families living with autism.
Hopebridge’s individualized center-based care offers:
In an effort to reduce wait times, Hopebridge is currently scheduling diagnostic assessments for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy evaluations for all six locations.
According to research conducted by Hopebridge, many of Colorado’s children are older than five years old before they are diagnosed with autism, which is older than the national average of four years old. In addition, ore than 33 percent of Colorado children with autism had to wait longer than six months to get their diagnosis. Hopebridge can reduce this wait to as little as 45 days with in-house diagnostic assessments.
“Every child with autism deserves to receive the care they need to live their best life,” said Hopebridge CEO Dennis May. “At Hopebridge, our goal is to make it easier and faster to receive that care, all under the one roof. Hopebridge services have provided hope for thousands of children across the country, and we are thrilled to make it accessible to more families in Colorado.”
These six Hopebridge Colorado centers will ultimately create more than 325 new jobs throughout the state to ensure every child with autism receives one-on-one, personalized therapy. The coordinated, complementary teams will consist of top Board Certified Behavioral Analysts (BCBA), registered behavior technicians (RBT), clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists and other industry professionals. This is all part of Hopebridge’s unique, multidisciplinary approach, Hopebridge360TM.
Abby Trotz, a BCBA at the University Hills Hopebridge center, has been working in early development for her entire career. “I met with a lot of families throughout my time working in ABA therapy in Colorado and so many of their children have had to wait up to a year or more for therapy after they receive an autism diagnosis,” said Abby. “Hopebridge aims to change this from the start. I am excited to work with Hopebridge to get these kids the services they need to live a more independent life.”
