FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 8, 2022 -- CentralReach, the leading provider of Autism and IDD Care software, today announced strong performance for the first half of 2022. Highlights include significant revenue and employee growth, the creation of a new software category to address the growing Autism and IDD Care gap, the acquisition of an education software company, a major rebranding campaign, additions to its senior leadership team, and plans for a new 25,000-square foot collaborative workspace at Bell Works in Holmdel, New Jersey.


CentralReach reported annual organic revenue growth of 43% and total revenue growth of 46% including acquisitions, further extending its market leadership position. The company now counts nearly 2,800 organizations as customers and has 130,000 users who serve almost half of all learners who receive Autism and IDD Care-related services today. 


Customers using the CentralReach platform to power their practice experienced an 8.4% growth in hiring since the start of the year with the company’s largest 10 customers, who make up 37,000 professionals in the ABA industry, experiencing a 16% increase in hiring over that same period.


I’m proud of the CentralReach team for keeping their laser focus on the needs of our clients as we both navigated challenges and took advantage of opportunities in the first half of this year,” said CentralReach CEO Chris Sullens. “Our growth and momentum are a direct result of their efforts to constantly improve our purpose-built solutions in a way that continues to make them the top choice for professionals delivering Applied Behavior Analysis and related therapies at home, school, and work."


The company also grew its employee base by 12% and promoted 36 employees, including Karen Bucks-Parisi to Chief Marketing Officer, who had previously served as the company’s Senior Vice President of Marketing for four years. 


Sullens noted, “Karen has built and led a marketing organization that has played a critical role in our rapid growth and has been a great partner to me and the rest of the leadership team as we've scaled, expanded and evolved our company, our processes and our approach to the market. She has also been instrumental in kicking off our next phase of growth with the successful creation and launch of the Autism and IDD Care Software category. I have the utmost confidence in her leadership as we continue on our mission to provide the leading software and services platform to help children and adults diagnosed with autism and related IDDs - and those who serve them - unlock potential, achieve better outcomes, and live more independent lives.”


Other key highlights and milestones for the first half of 2022 include:
