Hopebridge, the largest provider of applied behavior analysis (ABA) services for autistic and developmentally delayed children in Indiana, said it will expand into Kentucky and open new clinics later this year.
"We are proud to announce our plans to open several new clinics in Kentucky this year so that we may reach more patients and families who need our services," Hopebridge CEO Dennis May said in a release. "This is a serious step forward in Hopebridge's dedication to serving children with special needs everywhere, and we are incredibly excited to continue building a team of talented therapists who will live our mission of helping our patients and families live the best live possible."
Hopebridge's model of in-clinic therapy provides state of the art equipment, specially designed therapy rooms and the ability for therapists to consult and collaborate. The multidisciplinary approach allows personalized therapy for the children and families affected by autism spectrum disorder.
Hopebridge said it will open clinics in Bowling Green, Lexington and Louisville this summer. The clinics will offer ABA and occupational therapy and then expend to physical and speech therapies. When the Kentucky expansion is complete, Hopebridge said it anticipates filling more than 160 full and part-time positions to serve approximately 400 patients.
