In 2014, Dr. Ronit Molko sold the company she co-founded and built into one of the largest national autism service providers in the USA. . After the sale, Dr. Molko—a licensed clinical psychologist—found herself with a unique opportunity. By performing due diligence and healthcare services consulting for high-level investors and through interviews with numerous stakeholders in the autism marketplace, she began to view the entire industry from a different perspective. With this new perspective she stopped to ask herself: How have we as an industry performed? Where are we falling short? How do we evolve autism services? How do we do better?
The answers to these questions led Dr. Molko to author her first book, Autism Matters: Empowering Investors, Providers, and the Autism Community to Advance Autism Services. The book, published by ForbesBooks, is a critical and important review of what the autism services industry looks like today, where it is failing and why investment in this market is beneficial for investors, providers and consumers of these services.
