Helping Hands Family (HHF), a provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (“ABA”) therapy for children with autism, has begun its expansion in the Greater Philadelphia Area to address the significant unmet need for services in our communities. HHF plans to deliver much-needed ABA therapy in two new state-of-the-art clinics in Pennsylvania and New Jersey slated to open by mid-summer 2020.
HHF will open the two clinics as part of its overall Northeast US expansion in Malvern, PA and Mt. Laurel Township, NJ. These clinics will serve children aged 18-months and up, and are staffed by experienced, highly trained autism health specialists. These professionals provide children evidence-based treatment called Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, along with family guidance and counseling. HHF also has a clinic in Long Island, NY and will be opening more ABA clinics in Pennsylvania and New Jersey later this year.
“Our goal is to close the significant gap between children who need ABA therapy, and the resources currently available to them,” said Fali Sidhva, CEO of Helping Hands Family. “We want to be the solution for parents of autistic children in the Greater Philadelphia Area, and help nurture their children to achieve their greatest potential.”
In each clinic, HHF employs Board Certified Behavioral Analysts (BCBAs) who create and initiate customized ABA treatment plans for each child to help develop skills, create connections, and gain confidence. Autism affects one in 54 children in the U.S. and continues to rise each year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
