“SpectrumAi is uniquely positioned, and now well-capitalized, to progress ABA therapy to address a major unmet need in autism care. We look forward to supporting Ling Shao and the rest of their team as they advance the company into the next phase.”

“Autism advocates and parents of autistic children have made enormous strides to get all 50 states to mandate coverage of ABA therapy. But when we took a closer look at the industry, there have been a very limited number of investments that focus on quality in the space. The emphasis on quality is the key to better outcomes for families and a chance for autistic children to grow into their full potential.”

“As the investment and innovation arm of the autism community, Autism Impact Fund believes strongly in SpectrumAI’s model, which will lead to improved outcomes through disruptive technology and value based care.”

Chris Male

Autism Impact Fund’s Co-Founder and Managing Partner


“Families, employers and health plans are all frustrated about the quality differential in ABA treatments. We are all willing to pay but would like to get high-quality care in the process. Quality measures do not currently exist in the industry and there is a significant need to evolve towards a pay for quality or pay for value methodology.”
