Learn It was founded on a bold mission: to help all children succeed in school and life regardless of the obstacles they may face.

We are now a multi-faceted provider of specialized interventions working across the country to expand access to high quality services for families who need it most.”

The CDC reports that Autism affects a staggering 1:64 children
It is widely accepted that Applied Behavior Analysis is the most effective treatment for individuals with autism. Our autism services team has been providing interventions based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and Applied Verbal Behavior for over 15 years. We serve children in their homes, communities and schools and our team includes more than 90 Board Certified Behavior Analysts. Each team member is supported by the latest clinical technology and a wealth of expertise in partnering with insurance companies, schools and government payers to develop evidence based programs.
15% of students in schools have special needs
Our special education team collaborates with school leaders to improve services for students with special needs by addressing their most pressing challenges — personnel shortages, compliance and quality outcomes. We offer flexible solutions from just 5 hours a week of online therapy to full special education program management. Our team includes 14 different specialties and offers schools deep domain expertise in special education delivered with an unrivaled caring and collaborative approach.
The typical private placement can costs schools 2 to 3-times more over the long-term
Our managed classroom team works with schools to provide flexible, cost effective solutions to better serve students with emotional disabilities, students with autism, and students with alternative learning needs. Our fully-managed, self-contained classrooms are typically implemented as a school-within-a-school model enabling services to be delivered closer to students’ homes reducing travel and increasing opportunities for integration. Our team of behavior technicians, special education teachers, psychologists, and related services staff have a long track record achieving positive outcomes for students and reintegrating them to a less restrictive environment.

Since 2007, Learn It has served more than 100,000 struggling learners in its Title I academic programs. Title I provides federal funding to local school districts to help increase achievement among low-performing, economically-disadvantaged students.

We provide services to private schools in 10 urban cities and to public schools across the country.
