Acquisition of West Texas Autism Center expands Blue Sprig Pediatrics footprint in West Texas

Houston, TX – Blue Sprig Pediatrics, Inc. (“BlueSprig”) announces that it has acquired the assets of West Texas Autism Center, a West Texas based autism therapy provider with two centers in Abilene and San Angelo. West Texas Autism Center is a center-based provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy services treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“This acquisition is exciting as we are now able to better serve West Texas families,” said Keith Jones, President and CEO of BlueSprig. “With three centers in the West Texas area, we are uniquely positioned to make a significant positive impact in these communities and many more, as we expand across the West Texas region. As Texas’ largest ABA therapy services provider, we put quality and compassion before all else and believe it is our obligation to do all that we can to support families with autism across the state.”

BlueSprig’s mission is to change the world for children with autism by providing the very best ABA services, investing in research to improve those services, and advocating for resources and vital funding for children on the spectrum.

“We share the same values and vision for our kids, which was a key factor in deciding if we were a good fit for each other,” said Dr. Melissa Richardson, Owner of West Texas Autism Center. “We are excited about the additional support, training, advocacy and opportunities for staff and families with our partnership with BlueSprig.”

Jones added, “As the need for ABA therapy services continues to grow, BlueSprig will continue to invest in both de novo and acquisition growth in underserved regions, such as West Texas, to meet these growing needs.”
