Special Learning brings the highest quality autism and applied behavior analysis professional development opportunities to psychologists.

CHICAGO, May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, Special Learning, Inc., a global training and education provider specializing

in behavior analysis and related evidence-based autism interventions for behavior analysts, parents, educators and professionals who help individuals with autism and other special needs achieve independence, announced that it has received approval from the American Psychological Association (APA) to offer continuing education credits for Psychologists.

"Since its inception, our mission has been to help the over 70 million people in the world living with autism. By providing opportunities for professionals and educators to simultaneously access the highest quality content and meet their continuing education requirements, we continue to bridge the knowledge gap that hinders access to quality services," said Karen Chung, Founder and CEO of Special Learning, Inc.

Chung founded the company nearly a decade ago to help parents of children with autism around the globe gain access to a quality autism intervention called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Over the past 9 years, Special Learning, has served over 10,000 clients living in over 100 different countries. With a portfolio of over 500 training and educational resources, and more being developed monthly, Special Learning offers the most extensive array of solutions available in the global market.

The Company's commitment to serving the needs of the global community is demonstrated by its solutions being offered in multiple languages. In addition to its popular Spanish products, Special Learning has plans to release its trainings and educational materials in Russian and French this year, along with Arabic, Mandarin and Italian projects in the development pipeline for release in 2020.

With less than 38,000 Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) in the world- only 10% of whom practice outside the U.S.- over 95% of the world are unable to access quality ABA services. By training over 120,000 licensed psychologists in the U.S. how to develop and implement quality ABA programs, Special Learning is offering solutions to solve the acute shortage of quality ABA practitioners in the world. By offering BCBA candidate supervision training programs to Psychologists, the Company aims to remove the bottleneck that is constricting the number of new BCBAs being added to the field annually.

In partnership with thought leaders across multi-disciplinary health and behavioral fields, Special Learning is able to offer access to best in-class learning opportunities available to professionals, educators and parents who support individuals with autism and other special needs. Their current LIVE webinar series include highly relevant topics such as ADHD, Multi-disciplinary Collaboration and Professional and Organizational Ethics. Special Learning plans to launch LIVE Webinar series on thought provoking and often considered "taboo" subjects including Severe Problem Behavior, Sexual Education, Transition, and Behavior Analysis in the Education.
