CentralReach Opens Entire CEU Library for Free Access to All BCBAs

A Letter to the ABA Community

Today, the Coronavirus pandemic has forced us all to face unprecedented challenges to our way of life, how we operate our practices, and how we deliver care. When care and business continuity are critical, it’s important that we support each other and weather this storm together.

Here at CentralReach, our hearts go out to the entire ABA community and their learners who are impacted by these current events. Our team is actively working on an ongoing series of free business continuity materials to help you maintain a sense of continuity during these times, which can be accessed here.

In addition, we have decided to take it one step further. We know that many BCBAs are worried about getting the CEUs needed for recertification given the number of ABA conference cancellations. While compassionate extensions are being honored, CentralReach would like to help in the interim.

Today through April 30th, CentralReach will open up our entire CEU library for free access to the ABA community. With over 100+ CEUs available, we hope that this will give BCBAs some peace of mind knowing they can get their CEUs at no cost during this unprecedented time. This is open to anyone who needs CEUs so please spread the word.

To access the library, go directly to:

Once you register, you will have access to those free CEUs for the next 60 days. As always, we are here to answer any questions you may have.

Stay healthy,
Chris Sullens
CEO of CentralReach

CentralReach acquires Thread Learning to extend its leadership position within the ABA provider market, add solutions for the education and international ABA markets and supplement its industry-leading platform with Thread’s rapidly-growing, highly-rated, intuitive mobile data collection.

Pompano Beach FL, February 26th, 2020 – CentralReach, the leading provider of electronic medical record (EMR) practice management and clinical solutions that enable Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and related disorders, announced today that it has acquired Thread Learning (“Thread”), a powerful, intuitive, and offline-capable mobile data collection solution designed for center-based clinics and schools. The acquisition, when combined with CentralReach’s clinical offerings which includes an upcoming Electronic Visit Verification (EVV)-compliant mobile data collection app, further solidifies the company’s position in the market as the only end-to-end provider to offer a modern, intuitive, offline-capable suite of clinical solutions to deliver quality care, wherever care is delivered – in home, in clinic, and in school – all integrated directly with CentralReach’s powerful practice management solutions.

While a majority of ABA services are still predominantly delivered at home, there has been an uptick in the number of center-based clinics and K-12 schools now offering ABA therapy in individual and group settings – a trend that may in turn provide parents with more access to ABA therapy as the demand for services continues to surge in correlation with autism prevalence rates – 1 in every 59 children.

“Greg, Sam and the Thread team have brought a beautiful, intuitive, easy-to-learn and easy-to -use data collection solution to market that is universally loved by its users and will become a core piece of CentralReach’s vision for its next generation clinical data collection offering,” said CentralReach CEO, Chris Sullens. “In addition to adding Thread’s product and customers, I’m most thrilled to add the Thread team to CentralReach to help lead the development of our next generation clinical products. Today’s clinicians have a critical job to do and technology should be an enabler, not a deterrent. With our upcoming EVV-compliant mobile app, our redesigned CR PrecisionX data collection tool, and Thread’s intuitive solution for clinics and schools, CentralReach is now the only ABA software provider that offers powerful practice management software with a suite of clinical solutions that meet the unique needs of all care-delivery settings.”

Thread CEO, Greg Brill, will join the CentralReach team and drive CentralReach’s clinical solution product roadmap forward under the leadership of CentralReach’s Chief Product Officer, Cheryl Michael. The Thread platform will continue to be available as a standalone clinical solution as well as an integrated offering with the company’s existing practice management solutions – CR Essentials, a quick-start solution for smaller providers and the CentralReach enterprise platform designed for larger, multi-site providers that have more complex operational needs.

“Partnering with CentralReach allows us to further our mission of providing the most intuitive, flexible, and powerful ABA data collection platform on the market and I couldn’t be more excited for what comes next for the product and our customers,” commented Brill. “CentralReach provides us with the extensive resources we need to accelerate our product roadmap and the tools our customers have come to know and love. ABA clinicians should expect to see great things from Thread now that we are a core part of the CentralReach family.”

This is the fifth acquisition that CentralReach has made over the past 18 months and the third major acquisition of a clinical-related solution. The first acquisition occurred in mid-2018, when the company purchased Chartlytics, now known as CR PrecisionX, the only digital platform to support the ABA methodology known as precision teaching. Chartlytics founders David Stevens and Dr. Rick Kubina joined CentralReach, now serving as the General Manager of CentralReach’s content and programming division, CR Institute, and as CentralReach’s Director of Research respectively. The second acquisition occurred in late 2019, when the company purchased the clinical curriculum and programming business of Precise Xceleration Holdings. PXH Founder, Dr. Kerri Milyko, BCBA-D, LBA then joined CentralReach as Director of Clinical Programming to develop and deliver a fully digital, evidence-based clinical programming solution for autism therapy integrated directly into the CentralReach platform designed to accelerate learning outcomes for people with autism by identifying and making impactful changes to the treatment plan earlier in the therapy process and in an ongoing, iterative fashion.

CentralReach, a leading provider of electronic medical record (EMR) software and services that enable applied behavior analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism, has teamed up with a prominent ABA provider in the United States — Learning ARTS. The leading ABA center is now utilizing CentralReach’s powerful end-to-end practice management and clinical solutions to streamline its operational, financial and data collection efficiencies while enhancing its back-office procedures, allowing them to shorten waitlists for people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and expand their operations.

Learning ARTS was founded in 1997 by Dr. Will and Lara Brandon and is dedicated to the care of children within the autism spectrum. With over 10 locations and 20+ different funding/insurance agencies, including Medi-Cal and Medicaid; Learning ARTS provides services through Northern/Central California and Nevada regions.

“Approximately 1.5 million children in the United States have a diagnosis of autism, and while Applied Behavior Analysis has been shown to produce significant gains in children with autism across all learning and developmental domains, the current ratio of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to children on the spectrum of 1 BCBA for every 60 children, soars way above the ideal split,” said Learning ARTS CEO, Dr. William Brandon, BCBA-D, LBA. “Confounding the issue is that the rate of children diagnosed with autism currently exceeds the certification rate of practitioners, making it critical that agencies like Learning ARTS find innovative ways to increase capacity while maintaining the quality and personalization of care provided. CentralReach allows our practitioners to get real-time updates on client progress and compiles crucial clinical data with the press of a few buttons. Further, such data allows our team to make better care, clinical and business decisions company wide. Such innovations allow our practitioners more direct time with clients to help them reach their full potential while also allowing us to further expand our own operations to meet the growing need.”

Learning ARTS also expects to attract more talent and increase hiring velocity based on feedback heard during their own recruitment process that clinicians preferred to work at practices using the CentralReach platform.

In addition to their 10 locations and with the support of CentralReach’s end-to-end platform, Learning ARTS sees the opportunity for expansion in the following California counties:

  • Alameda
  • Contra Costa
  • Oakland
  • San Leandro
  • Napa
  • Solano
  • Santa ClaraSonoma
  • Santa Rosa

“The Learning ARTS-CentralReach partnership is a powerful combination,” said CentralReach CEO, Chris Sullens. “Dr. Brandon and his team are delivering mission-critical services to the autism community as prevalence rates and demand for ABA services continue to rise. By optimizing the underlying processes and operations that support those services with the CentralReach platform, they will be equipped to efficiently execute on their expansion strategy all while maintaining quality of care and compliance with the ever-changing regulatory landscape. We are thrilled to play a role in their growth in 2020 and beyond.”

The CentralReach platform, known for its ABA-specific workflows and functionality, is currently being used by over 85,000 clinicians and administrators across the United States and North America.

Pompano Beach, FL – November 27, 2019 – CentralReach has been named a silver winner in for Company of the Year (Medium category) in the 9th annual Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.

Since the program’s inception in 2011, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants have spanned the spectrum, from the most innovative local companies and start-ups to some of the most recognizable global brands.

Pompano Beach, Florida – November 21, 2019 – CentralReach, the leading provider of electronic medical record (EMR) technology and practice management solutions that enable over 80,000 Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and behavioral disorders, today announced the rebrand and relaunch of its acquired real-time behavior change analytics software, Chartlytics, to CentralReach PrecisionX, or CR PrecisionX.

CR PrecisionX arms clinicians with the power to make and measure real-time decisions and adjust a client’s clinical treatment plan accordingly using a digitized version of the Standard Celeration Chart. With increased frequency in quality decision making that is closer to the point of care, clinicians can positively transform the developmental trajectories of people on the autism spectrum.

“This is an exciting moment for precision measurement and the ABA community at large,” said Chris Sullens, CEO of CentralReach. “Increasing the frequency and quality of decision making for CentralReach behavior clinicians and technicians will help learners — many of them children on the spectrum — live richer, more independent lives. It will also serve to make clinicians more efficient and effective in their decision making to more quickly overcome any potential gaps in the skills of the learners – a benefit that should be welcomed given the capacity constraint that currently exists with only 36,000 Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) available to serve the millions of people with autism.”

This relaunch represents just one of the many investments CentralReach is making into the advancement of the ABA therapy with transformative methodologies, content and software. Earlier this year, the company launched its research, content and educational arm, CR Institute, to spearhead ABA research, develop and offer ongoing education with an ever-growing library of hundreds of continuing education courses, fully-digital clinical programming, ABA consulting, training and much more, all with the sole purpose of propelling ABA therapy forward.
