Autism Spectrum Disorder

Healthcare Services | Contributors: Russell Bryan, Stephen Scott

The autism treatment services sector for people 21 and under is worth approximately $15b and is rapidly growing due to accelerating demand, increased prevalence, and diagnosis, and expanded insurance coverage. Furthermore, significant market fragmentation and high valuations related to this growth has attracted increased investment from private equity groups. Investors are building treatment services platforms to address the need for increased provider capacity and services. Overall, the autism treatment sector will increasingly evolve in the coming years, particularly as regulatory requirements and reimbursement adapt to the needs, and companies move to achieve scale to meet market demand.
