Redefining Clinical Pathways

Backed by more than a decade’s worth of real-world clinical data and the deep expertise of a multidisciplinary team, Catalight’s Research Institute is redefining what high-quality Autism Spectrum Disorder (AS) and Intellectual and Developmental Disability (I/DD) care means: flexible, person-centered treatment focused on impactful outcomes and overall family wellbeing.

Meeting Families Where
They Are

It can be challenging to find the right level of care and support—especially with a one-size-fits-all approach which leaves families with disjointed care and treatment that doesn’t recognize their unique needs. With Catalight’s experienced, outcome- and wellbeing-driven care team, families will get high-quality, person-centered care to support them throughout their journey.

Treatment Options

Equipped with in-depth research and real-world experience, we are setting new industry standards and driving flexible treatment options to elevate the experience of our clients and their families. Our broad scope of services supports individuals wherever they are on their path.


Clinicians are at the forefront of care. That’s why we offer a variety of clinical and professional development opportunities to ensure they have the evidence-based skills and knowledge needed to improve client experiences and outcomes.

To accompany our industry-leading service lines, we are excited to offer the clinicians in our network new, online post-graduate programs to help further their careers. Led by experts in their fields, these self-paced courses include web-based and virtual training along with clinical mentorship, training materials and tools to support the clinician.

Certificate Programs

Assessment-Based Certificate Programs (ABCPs) are our way of training the clinicians of the future. These programs are designed to give individuals the skills and knowledge they need to become a clinician for one of our treatment options. Some of our ABCPs also provide certified and licensed clinicians with continuing education credits.

Practitioners must meet the prerequisites for the program and complete web-based training. In addition, some programs require live, virtual training. As a final step, practitioners must pass an exam demonstrating competency in the program.
