How Do We Evolve Autism Services?

We are approaching a critical period in the autism community. With a growing

population of maturing and aging individuals living with autism, it is time to look

to the future and ask how we can provide meaningful outcomes that enable a real

quality of life for individuals with autism and successful investment opportunities

for investors.

In her latest book, Autism Matters: Empowering Investors, Providers, and the

Autism Community to Advance Autism Services, Dr. Ronit Molko takes a critical

look at the autism services industry and outlines the path for providers, clinicians,

and investors to forge new programs and opportunities that will equip autistic

individuals with the skills they need to build high-quality, self-determined lives.

A growing number of individuals with autism are speaking out about the deficits in

current autism services. These individuals need support and services that will help

them achieve long-term successes as well as independent and self-fulfilled lives.

It’s time to revolutionize the autism services industry; but the market won’t change

itself. Investors are needed to advance and evolve an industry that is paramount

to the successful development and support of countless autistic individuals. With

Dr. Molko’s unparalleled knowledge and experience, Autism Matters is the primary

resource for investors looking to enter the autism services market.
