CHICAGO, June 15, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Special Learning, Inc., celebrates its 8th year of helping parents,
In 2010, when Special Learning was first formed, the Autism prevalence rate in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was 1 in 110. In just 8 short years, that number has almost doubled to 1 in 59! Using those figures, there are approximately 130 million people in the world with Autism.
Special Learning's mission is to help every person in the world living with Autism achieve independence so that they can live happy and fulfilling lives. This mission may seem far fetched at times. However, inspired by Bill Gates who once wanted to put "a computer on every desk and in every home," Karen Chung, Special Learning CEO and Founder believes that "... if Microsoft can do it, why can't we? Especially when achieving our mission will mean that we've helped to improve the lives of millions of people with autism around the world."
The road to turning that mission into a reality has been a long one, but not without worthwhile milestones. In just 8 years, using its technology platform, Special Learning has helped parents, teachers and clinicians in over 100 countries (covering all continents) get access to quality Autism training and educational resources - reaching developing countries like Bangladesh and as far reaching as Mauritius.
The goal of Special Learning is to be accessible to anyone, from anywhere, and at any time. To remove barriers caused by geography, financial means or ability to comprehend due to language or educational background. Dedicated members of Special Learning's team work tirelessly to knock down those "barriers to access" in order to reach and help those parents, educators and health professionals who are equally as passionate about making a difference in people's lives.
With an eye towards creating the Global Autism Ecosystem, Special Learning continues to facilitate information and knowledge sharing by providing other health professionals - Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers and Psychologists - with the training, education and resources necessary to join our global community of behavior analysts, therapists and special educators so that we can collectively help those millions of people with Autism and other special needs achieve their highest level of independence.
