Partnership expands footprint to Michigan and advances mission of CHANGING THE WORLD FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISMTM
HOUSTON, TX – October 21, 2020 – Blue Sprig Pediatrics, Inc. (“BlueSprig”) announces that it has acquired the assets of the Michigan based Momentum Autism Therapy Services (“Momentum”). Momentum is a center and home-based provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy services treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“We are proud to partner with the team at Momentum and excited about the opportunity to expand into Michigan” said Keith Jones, President and CEO of BlueSprig. “Moving into a new area to serve a population in need of high-quality services, advocacy, and awareness is paramount to our mission.”
“Our team at Momentum is excited to partner with the BlueSprig Family” said Landria Seals Green, CEO of Momentum. “To reach more families and have a greater impact in Michigan is a dream fulfilled.”
Green added “From the very first conversation, it felt like a great synergy and partnership. Michigan is filled with families from many different backgrounds, and BlueSprig understands the importance of diversity and that treatment is not a one size model.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) now estimates that one in 54 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with ASD by the age of eight. ABA therapy is recognized as the gold standard of care for children with ASD.
Jones added “BlueSprig’s mission is to change the world for children with autism and we are excited to have Momentum join us on our mission. Together, we look forward to increasing access and fulfilling the unmet need for high-quality behavior analysis treatment in Michigan and across the United States.”
