Action Behavior Centers

Year of Investment:







Austin, TX





Action Behavior Centers (“ABC”) provides personalized therapy for children with autism, with the goal of expanding their potential and improving their quality of life. Founded as a single center in Austin, TX, in 2016, ABC currently employs approximately 1100 graduate-level clinicians and operates more than 200 centers across Texas, Colorado, Arizona, Illinois, North Carolina and Minnesota. ABC uses center-based Applied Behavior Analysis (“ABA”) treatment, which is widely considered the gold standard in autism treatment by payors and clinicians; ABA helps children ages 2-14 years old reduce symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”), such as self-harm and aggression.

Charlesbank Investment

Charlesbank invested in Action Behavior Centers in September 2022. Our investment is a culmination of a multi-year evaluation of many ABA providers. Our diligence validated ABC’s position as a leading ABA provider with strong clinical outcomes, a unique culture that supports clinician retention, and a data-driven management team. Our investment will enable the company to add centers in both new and existing geographies to meet increasing patient demand while maintaining strong clinical outcomes.
