Proud Moments ABA Ranks in top third of Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies

High speed growth trajectory is what fulfills the mission to deliver the gold standard of care to more children diagnosed on the autism spectrum nationwide

BROOKLYN, N.Y., Aug. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Inc. magazine today revealed that Proud Moments is ranked #1262, in the top third of its annual Inc. 5000 list, an impressive ranking given its annual revenue of over $100 million.  The Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“We are honored to be recognized among this group of distinguished entrepreneurs.  More than anything, we are incredibly proud of the dedication, hard work and commitment of our employees and therapists who, through joy and adversity, help us every day to deliver the gold standard of care to children diagnosed on the autism spectrum,” said Eli Rubin, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Proud Moments.  

“It has been a true privilege to lead the Proud Moments team to this level of exciting growth.  As the team at Inc. has shared, this recognition is a signal of even greater things to come for our company, our team and our mission – and we are greatly looking forward to what comes next,” added Patricia Buiocchi, Chief Operating Officer, Proud Moments.

“From the day we started Proud Moments at our kitchen table, we have kept one thing sacred: our clinical quality.  That continues to be our philosophy as we grow: to never compromise on the quality of care that we deliver to the families we serve.  These high standards are what attracts the best people in ABA and beyond, and they are what propel us to the next level every day,” added Chanie Rubin, Co-Founder and Chief Quality Officer, Proud Moments 

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”

Autistic people have fought the inclusion of ABA in therapy for us since before Autism Speaks, and other non-Autistic-led autism organizations, started lobbying legislation to get it covered by insurances and Medicaid. 

ABA is a myth originally sold to parents that it would keep their Autistic child out of an institution. Today, parents are told that with early intervention therapy their child will either be less Autistic or no longer Autistic by elementary school, and can be mainstreamed in typical education classes. ABA is very expensive to pay out of pocket. Essentially, Autism Speaks has justified the big price tag up front will offset the overall burden on resources for an Autistic’s lifetime. The recommendation for this therapy is 40 hours a week for children and toddlers.

The original study that showed the success rate of ABA to be at 50% has never been replicated. In fact, the study of ABA by United States Department of Defense was denounced as a failure. Not just once, but multiple times. Simply stated: ABA doesn’t workIn study after repeated study: ABA (conversion therapy) doesn’t work. 

What more recent studies do show: Autistics who experienced ABA therapy are at high risk to develop PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions. Historically, the autism organizations promoting ABA as a cure or solution have silenced Autistic advocates’ opposition. ABA is also known as gay conversion therapy.

The ‘cure’ for Autistics not born yet is the prevention of birth. 

The ‘cure’ is a choice to terminate a pregnancy based on ‘autism risk.’ The cure is abortion. This is the same ‘cure’ society has for Down Syndrome. 

This is eugenics 2021. Instead of killing Autistics and disabled children in gas chambers or ‘mercy killings’ like in Aktion T4, it’ll happen at the doctor’s office, quietly, one Autistic baby at a time. Different approaches yes, but still eugenics and the extinction of an entire minority group of people.

Fact: You can’t cure Autistics from being Autistic.

Fact: You can’t recover an Autistic from being Autistic.

Fact: You can groom an Autistic to mask and hide their traits. Somewhat. … however, this comes at the expense of the Autistic child, promotes Autistic Burnout (this should not be confused with typical burnout, Autistic Burnout can kill Autistics), and places the Autistic child at high risk for PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions.

[Note: Autism is NOT a disease, but a neurodevelopmental difference and disability.]

Fact: Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism.
