A video showcasing the Autism Treatment Center Business Plan:

People with autism have unique needs as relates to how they interact with other people and function the world. As such, autism treatment centers have become very popular businesses over the past 10 years as people have taken a much more compassionate view to working with people that are on the autism spectrum. These businesses are able to remain profitable in any economic climate given that they render important physical and mental health services to these people. Additionally, families of people with autism are very willing to have the these individuals get the assistance they need so they can thrive in society. The barriers to entry for a new autism treatment center are very high given that it is usually a medical professional or mental health professional that seeks to develop these businesses. The licensure required to operate one of these facilities varies from state to state and as such it is important that an entrepreneur that is looking to start one of these facilities consult with an attorney to determine which licenses are needed in order to render the services to the general public.

If an entrepreneur is looking to raise capital to start their new autism treatment center then it is very important that they have a business plan. This document should showcase the market, approximate percentage of people with autism, median household income, and the competition that these businesses will face on an ongoing basis. The business plan should also include information relating to the anticipated financial results of the business. Within most business plans, this includes a three-year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page that can be reviewed by a potential funding source to make an investment or lending decision. Most investors and financial institutions are happy to provide the capital needed to start autism treatment center given the very high demand for these services as well as the high gross margins that are generated from services rendered. One of the drawbacks to these businesses is that they do have very high operating costs given that health care and mental health professionals need to be hired to provide treatment to people with autism. The startup costs for a new autism treatment center generally range from anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000 depending on whether or not it is going to be a standalone facility, and whether or not the business is going to acquire real estate. One of the other things that used to be discussed within the business plan is whether the company will be able to receive insurance reimbursements from both private insurance companies as well as publicly funded healthcare systems. Generally, if mental health services are being provided on-site in conjunction with general care – and these businesses are able to qualify for receiving payment from insurance companies.

As it relates to the autism treatment center marketing plan, it is very important that an individual that is going to own and operate one of these facilities develop ongoing relationships with other mental health professionals, pediatricians, schools, and other entities in which people with autism use on an ongoing basis. It is of the utmost importance that referrals are generated in order to develop the customer base. Additionally, and as with any other business – it is important to have an online presence. The website for the autism treatment center should feature information about the business, practitioners, hours of operation, whether or not insurance is accepted, and other relevant information pertaining to autism and how to help people that have this disorder.

Frequently done in conjunction with the marketing plan and business plan, is the autism treatment center SWOT analysis. This analysis focuses on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats faced by most companies. As it relates to strengths, and as discussed above – the demand for autism treatment centers has exploded over the past 5 to 10 years. Additionally, these companies are able to generate significant fees by assisting people with autism. For weaknesses, this is still a new industry and are currently a number of issues that need to be addressed on an ongoing basis especially as it pertains to treating people that are on the autism spectrum. As it relates to opportunities, many owner operators of these businesses seek to develop ongoing relationships with referring physicians while concurrently establishing additional locations. For threats, he owned changes to Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance reimbursement policies – there are very few ongoing threats outside competitive issues that would impact the way that an autism treatment center conducts business.
