Autism Optimism

Autism Optimism, A Franchise Offering.

A UNIQUE FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY in a High-Demand, High-Growth Industry.

One in 36 children is diagnosed with autism in the U.S., helping drive the $140.1 billion Behavioral Health Market. However, the demand for autism related services outstrips the supply of Providers. Finding quality, compassionate services can be difficult for families, creating an opportunity gap in the industry. Due to effective core services and unique brand positioning, Autism Optimism offers an exciting investment opportunity for BCBAs and other Care Providers:

Strong ROI
With high growth potential and reasonable start-up costs, Autism Optimism offers a fast potential ROI for a motivated owner/operator or a semi-active financial sponsor managing several locations. In the latter instance, the actual care will be provided by the operating partner, the Behavioral Analyst.

Easy to Grasp Business Model
Through proven protocols and systems, we’ve constructed a sound business model that’s easy to grasp and replicable in any market.

Brand Positioning
The Autism Optimism model provides evidence-based multi- disciplinary services, the vast majority of which are covered by insurance. These include ABA, Speech, and Occupational Therapy that focus on results. With its effective service offerings, it is competitively positioned in the behavioral health industry.

Positive Community Impact
By providing much needed services, an Autism Optimism franchise will have a positive impact on clients, families, and the greater community.

Comprehensive Training and Support
Autism Optimism’s experienced leadership team will provide a platform for franchisee success via comprehensive training and support.

Don’t Miss the Opportunity to Be Part of a Better Approach to Behavioral Health.

ABOUT THIS FRANCHISE An Optimistic Outlook on Autism Services.

Autism Optimism provides top-quality person-centered services to help individuals on the Autism Spectrum reach their highest potential. Coming from a background in behavioral health, founder Lee Whitfield drew upon his experience as a professional life coach to create the Autism Optimism business model. By prioritizing patient care while enabling Providers to operate their own businesses, Autism Optimism offers a platform that serves the needs of both patients and Providers.

Because the behavioral clinic industry lacks a dominant brand, Autism Optimism is uniquely positioned to fill that market segment with clinics that are owned and operated by Clinicians. With a finely tuned business model, Franchisees will benefit from the professional business practices and strategies that are an integral part of the operating system.
