OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kadiant, a mission-driven organization that provides high-quality Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy and related services to individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), announced today it has acquired Personal Assistance Services of Colorado’s (PASCO) Behavior Therapy business. PASCO’s additional healthcare services – including CNA, Family Caregiver, Personal Care, and others – will continue to operate independently under the PASCO brand. Terms of the partnership are not being disclosed.
Founded in 1992 by Barry Rosenberg, PASCO strives to enable people with disabilities to live independently and pursue a life of their choosing. When Colorado opened up access to service for individuals with behavioral challenges in 2016, PASCO recruited a team of ABA providers in the Denver metro area to help meet the need. Since then, the PASCO team has worked with its clients to achieve positive behavioral changes through individualized success plans that are anchored in a family-centric approach.
“We are excited for our Behavior Therapy team to have the opportunity for continued professional growth with Kadiant,” said Adam Steinbrunner, CEO of PASCO. “We admire Kadiant’s commitment to quality and excellence in care, and are confident that their experience and knowledge in ABA will continue to build on our objective to positively impact the lives of our clients and their families.”
“PASCO was founded to focus on the needs and choices of individuals. They have maintained their people-centric approach for 25 years, and it perfectly matches Kadiant’s core values,” said Lani Fritts, CEO of Kadiant. “We are honored to partner with PASCO and their highly skilled team of BCBAs, and look forward to continuing to enable our clients, their families, and our new team members to live their absolute best lives.”
Kadiant offers ABA therapy and related services in Southern and Northern California, Colorado, Georgia, Ohio, Oregon, and Washington. The organization’s other partnerships include Behavioral Education for Children with Autism (BECA), Capitol Autism Services (C.A.S), Central Valley Autism Project (CVAP), Kids Overcoming (KOI), Integrated Behavioral Solutions (IBS), Pathfinder Progress (Pathfinder), and STE Consultants.
