ABA Centers of America has been named to the Inc. 2023 Best in Business list in the “Health Services” and “On the Rise” categories. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society.
Just 215 winners were selected from an applicant pool that was incredibly competitive, with thousands of candidates across 70 different categories vying to be selected.
Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. Inc.’s Best in Business honorees don’t need to demonstrate record revenue, but they do need something perhaps even more unusual: the foresight, caring, and dedication to prioritize positive impact – impact on their community, on their industry and the environment, and even on society as a whole.
Just how is ABA Centers of America impacting the health services industry? The organization made a $1 million donation to Temple University to develop the ABA Centers Autism Laboratory. Once completed, the autism lab will be used to conduct autism research, offer diagnostic services, and train students to build the necessary workforces to meet the current needs of the autistic community, as well as make a difference for the general public. As an extension of this partnership, the university developed an online tract to its applied behavior analysis master’s program. ABA Centers of America has provided full ride scholarships to this continuing education opportunity to 20 of its current team members and, because of its virtual nature, a greater pool of future clinicians across the globe have access to these worldclass courses.
“Just three short years ago, the dream was to build a team that would disrupt and redefine autism care, a team that was dedicated to genuinely making a difference in the lives of families when those families need it most,” said Christopher Barnett, Chief Executive Officer of ABA Centers. “Achieving financial success as a company is a great feeling, but there’s nothing greater than being recognized for changing lives, and we’re incredibly honored to have been included on Inc.’s Best in Business list.”
The full Best in Business list can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine on newsstands December 12. Honorees are also featured online at www.inc.com/best-in-business.
