Short company description:

Verbal Beginnings provides integrated care through applied behavior analysis (ABA), speech, and occupational services to children with autism. We collaborate with other like minded healthcare companies to ensure optimal outcomes for our clients and their families.

What Is Your Why (Why Are You In Business)?

Everything I do relates in some way – directly or indirectly – to the clients that receive ABA services. Whether it’s advocating for policy changes in healthcare plans, working with other advocates to improve access to care, collaborating with professionals to develop standards of care, or engaging with providers, the heart of the work is so that clients get what they deserve: clinically excellent services.

How did you get started in your field or work?

I began working with disabled adults in college – and loved the privilege of doing so! That led to a natural selection of courses in school, and also helped paint my career path.

What’s one thing we should know that makes your company unique?

By always looking to the future of healthcare, we strategically map out our clinical priorities, partnerships with other organizations, and operational activities to ensure our clients receive the most efficient and effective care possible.

What are your biggest goals in the next 6 to 12 Months for your business?

We are in the process of developing our integrated care model that will give a complete picture of how the client’s quality of life and health is positively impacted by our services, while allowing for collaboration with the client’s medical providers.

Who do you know that is impacted by Autism and how has that impacted you?

So many people – young and old. I do not presume to know what they want to say, but my professional mission has always been to “Speak for those who cannot speak.” And to me that means leveraging all opportunities to improve the quality and access to care for clients, the services they receive, and the impact it has on their life. And each autistic who I have met, worked with, and have loved remains at the center of my work.
