Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Feb. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CentralReach, the leading provider of electronic medical record (EMR), practice management, and clinical solutions that enable Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and related behavioral health practices to deliver quality autism care for superior outcomes, today announced the acquisition of Irish-based Avail Support Limited, an award-winning provider of evidence-based digital content management and data collection solutions serving the education, employment support services, and adult transition services markets. The acquisition will bolster CentralReach's already market-leading, end-to-end solution, making it the most robust platform to serve the needs of neurodiverse individuals of any age, in any setting.
What is avail®? Avail Support's online and interactive platform, avail®, provides tailored training and ongoing support for neurodiverse individuals with Autism, developmental disabilities, learning difficulties, brain injuries, mental health diagnoses, and cognitive disabilities to learn the skills needed to live more independent lives.
Using Applied Behavior Analysis methodologies and evidence-based interventions, the platform provides a personalized learning plan based on the needs of the individual, learning through repetition, built-in assessments and individual reports, remote prompting, and additional skills when prior skills are mastered. The solution can be used both independently and as a supplement to professionally-delivered clinical care and can be deployed in multiple settings: in schools to accelerate learning outcomes, for employers looking to better support and expand neurodiversity programs, and for behavioral health providers to expand capacity to serve more clients.
"I'm thrilled to welcome Avail Support and its founder, Lisa Marie, to the team," said CentralReach CEO Chris Sullens. "In an era where the delivery of individual care is more capacity constrained than ever before as waitlists for behavioral health services grow, students wait for individual teacher attention, and employer training and support doesn't account for neurodiversity, avail® enables neurodiverse individuals to increase their independence by taking more direct control of their learning and skill acquisition. The combination of CentralReach and avail® stands to disrupt the behavioral health software market and how the future of care is delivered."
Schools using the avail® platform have reported that the platform reduces the need for 1-on-1 special education assistance, improving learning outcomes and successes.
