Driving the Evolution of Care

Catalight is reshaping the treatment landscape with new treatment options driven from 10 plus years of real-world experience and a deep bench of data that informs our research and treatment plans. Given the diverse population of clients and families we serve, one size doesn’t fit all and offering a variety of person-centered care options is critical to quality outcomes and overall wellbeing.

Broad Knowledge

Our multidisciplinary clinical team includes Board Certified Behavior Analysts® (BCBAs®) and psychologists, as well as Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs), Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs) and neuropsychologists. This allows us to develop treatment programs that consider the wide array of factors influencing health and wellbeing, ultimately leading to better outcomes.

Beyond offering care directly, Catalight also takes network management a step beyond contracting and compliance. We focus on matching people with the right providers and practitioners and on marshaling every resource to enhance overall client experience.

Non-Profit Organization

Our work is motivated by people, not profit. We invest in our team members, services and support systems to improve the lives of those with ASD and I/DDs and the people who care for them.

Helping people motivates us because when our clients win, we win. With a keen focus on outcomes, we’re able to work in a value-based care framework to ensure cost savings for families and payers, while delivering quality at scale.
