Opya expands its services to Orange County, California
IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Opya, a leader in early intervention therapy for children diagnosed with autism, has earned a three-year Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) Accreditation® for its personalized in-home autism services.
By combining exceptional clinical treatment with the best of digital technology, Opya is changing how care is delivered for children newly diagnosed with autism and transforming the lives of neurodiverse children and their families. Most recently, the company expanded its services from Northern California to Orange County in Southern California.
"On behalf of the entire team at BHCOE, I want to congratulate Opya on achieving a 3-year accreditation," said BHCOE Founder and CEO Sara Litvak. "We commend the significant investment of time and effort Opya has placed in pursuing accreditation and demonstrating a commitment to providing quality services."
A study recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics shows that one in 30 children are being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the United States. There is a tremendous unmet demand for autism care, and the lack of providers prolongs potential diagnoses and the start of treatment, which can greatly hinder early intervention and optimal clinical outcomes – especially for children in underserved communities.
"From conversations with local pediatricians and organizations in Orange County, families may be waiting up to 18 months for their child to begin autism therapy," Opya CEO Alden Romney said. "We do not have a waitlist for services in Orange County and we are eager to help more children today."
Opya specializes in personalized, in-home, early intervention ABA therapy services for newly diagnosed children aged 18 months up to 6 years old, in addition to providing complementary speech and occupational therapies virtually. Its connected care model results in a high level of communication and collaboration between parents and clinicians that makes parents' lives easier and empowers therapists to provide more effective care.
