Think is a multidisciplinary center offering therapeutic services to children, in Bahrain and remotely, who have ASD or other developmental and behavior disorders. Ingy, our Founder and Managing Director, began Think four years ago.
Think is currently the only center in Bahrain offering Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services that are BCBA supervised according to board standards (www.bacb.com). We are now a dynamic center with two directors, in-clinic and outreach programs, supervisors, leads and primary therapists in addition to SLT and OT services.
We have a beautiful, custom facility that accommodates over 20 clinical staff. Having grown from a staff of 4 people three years ago to around 30 today, Think changes and evolves regularly.
Our mission is to improve the life outcomes of children with ASD, behavioral and developmental delays through interventions that rely solely on evidenced based practice.
We offer the best possible data driven solutions to enable the children we serve to reach their maximum potential and to support and help the parents of those children.
Our purpose is to improve life-outcomes for children with development delays in Bahrain, one family at a time.
Achieving the optimal outcome for a child with developmental delays requires a highly trained and skilled team. This means that good therapy comes at a high cost.
One child could need several hours a day of ABA therapy to achieve her or his maximum outcome. We know families who have more than one child requiring this level of service. For many families, the level of ABA therapy that can make a real difference is simply unaffordable.
Although families do have access to universal health coverage in Bahrain, this coverage does not extend to treatment for developmental delays, like autism and related disorders. Furthermore, lower income families are unlikely to have employer-provided private insurance that is extensive enough to cover this cost.
Consequently, the cost of providing the best quality therapy makes this therapy inaccessible to some families who are in most need of it.
