Healthcare Tech Outlook | Monday, July 04, 2022

CentralReach provides software that helps individuals with autism and IDD work independently.

FREMONT, CA: "As the mother of an adult child with a disability who was told our daughter would never be able to work or hold a job without hand-holding from a job coach, I'm completely blown away by the way avail has been able to assist her," states Sharon Roth. CentralReach, the leading provider of Autism and IDD Care Software, has come up with the most recent version of avail®, which provides remote workflow support for individuals with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to achieve goals related to pre-employment, job readiness skills, on-the-job work tasks, and independent living. The most recent version of the solution streamlines task analysis. It provides step-by-step digital coaching, among other features, to assist neurodiverse individuals in mastering job-related tasks and attaining workplace independence more quickly.

"Avail has given her the support and confidence she not only needs to excel at her job but also a greater sense of increased self-responsibility in handling tasks and chores here at home. And after getting an advanced preview of the new avail 2.0 at this year's APSE conference I'm extremely confident the platform will be able to help even more people like my daughter excel at work and live with more autonomy,"  adds Roth.

CentralReach has already received positive feedback on avail® 2.0 in the wake of this year's Association of People Supporting Employment (APSE) conference, held June 13-15 in Denver, Colorado, where the application was previewed. The conference highlighted the urgent need for innovative technology to support more neurodiverse employment. With an estimated 80 percent of persons with an intellectual or developmental disability being unemployed, avail 2.0 offers employers the possibility to fill available job openings with a largely untapped talent pool.

The digital solution can also enhance and reinforce home and school-based Applied Behavior Analysis therapy.

"We recognize the valuable impact that leveraging technology can bring to the autism and IDD community," states Lisa Marie Clinton, Managing Director of avail by CentralReach. "We are thrilled to bring the second version of our avail solution to market. This next generation will further bolster the neurodiverse employment and adult transition market, as well as the therapy provider and special education markets, with tools to streamline increased capabilities and support the lifelong care journey for individuals diagnosed with autism and IDD."

“At CentralReach, we remain steadfast in our commitment to addressing the growing autism and IDD care gap with our impactful technology,” comments Chris Sullens, CEO of CentralReach. “With this new version of avail, we are eager to bring enhanced support to neurodiverse individuals in their journey towards achieving increased autonomy in all aspects of their life. The introduction of avail® 2.0 also follows through on our promise to deliver therapy providers, educators, and job coaches integrated, purpose-built software solutions that enable them to unlock the full potential of the individuals they work with in an effective and cost-efficient way.”
