About Centria Healthcare:
Centria Healthcare is a leading provider of home-based catastrophic injury and rehabilitation services, private duty nursing, supportive living services, and Applied Behavior Analysis therapy for children with autism. With more than 2,000 trained clinical staff members across the country, Centria provides much-needed support to families living with autism, from pre-diagnosis options to treatment planning to direct therapy services.

About Autism Spectrum Disorder:
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is complex neuropsychological condition that can adversely affect child development and global functioning through deficits in communication and social interaction, adaptive skills and learning, and patterns of restricted, repetitive behavior, interests, or activities. While the underlying cause of ASD is still unknown, numerous studies over 30 years have shown that starting as soon as possible after diagnosis with comprehensive intensive behavioral intervention based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis can improve developmental trajectory, reduce the needs for special services and supports at school-age, and increase the capacity for independent living.
