We get it. It’s difficult to teach autistic children. Our internal team consists of parents with autistic children too. After undergoing this experience ourselves, we truly believe that our unique Applied Behavior Analysis – Verbal Behaviour (ABA-VB) therapy is the most powerful way you can transform your child’s life. Our children with developmental delays who have undergone our unique ABA-VB programme did not just enter mainstream school, some have even entered Ivy League universities.
We pride ourselves on going the extra mile, whether it’s in terms of:
We do so because we believe in the ability of an effective ABA-VB therapy programme to open doors in your child’s life and maximise your child’s greatest potential.
Autism Recovery Network is known as the standard-setting provider of effective, high-quality early intervention programmes across Asia, including Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan and the Philippines.
After moving to Hong Kong in the late 1990s, ARN’s Greek-born, Canadian-educated founder, Dino Trakakis, found that there was a distinct lack of autism therapy services in Asia. Moved by the desperate plight of families he knew who were going without treatment, Dino put his master’s degree in Psychology to work along with a band with friends to invite experts in the autism field to conduct seminars and training for parents in ABA (Applied Behavioural Analysis).
At one of these seminars, he met Dr Partington, Ph.D., BCBA-D, the founder of a newer form of ABA, Verbal Behaviour (ABA-VB). He was deeply inspired by Dr Partington’s depth of knowledge and insightful approach to autism treatment, which is so different from the robotic approach of traditional ABA widely used by others.
Inspired by ABA-VB’s effectiveness, Dino set up the first branch of ARN in Hong Kong in 2005, with Dr Partington acting as both mentor and consultant for the new therapy centre and providing training for the staff.
Centres in Singapore and Indonesia were established in the following years, and ARN now has an over 180-strong team of clinicians and consultants who serve the greater Asian region.
Dino has an overwhelming desire to help every family that walks through ARN’s doors. He speaks passionately about treating children with autism as early as possible because he has seen first-hand the difference it can make.
