ACM Acquires Compass Wellness ABA Services

TRAVERSE CITY, MI, April 22, 2019 — Autism Centers of Michigan (ACM), a leading
provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services throughout Michigan, announced
today that it has acquired the ABA services business of Compass Wellness Center, a
mental health supports provider based in Otsego, Michigan. Effective April 22, ACM will
provide ongoing ABA treatment for all Compass Wellness ABA clients, serving
individuals throughout Allegan Country from an existing, 9,000+ square foot clinical
center in downtown Otsego. Compass Wellness Center will continue to provide
diagnostic and testing services for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), as well as other
mental health outpatient services.

“We are thrilled to bring Allegan County and so many additional clients into the Autism
Centers of Michigan family,” said Krista Boe, a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)
and ACM’s Chief Clinical Officer. “The Compass Wellness staff and service standards are
an ideal fit for ACM, and a valued addition to our best-in-class treatment services for
individuals impacted by autism.” Compass Wellness Center’s Founder, Dr. Amber
Burnett, PsyD, BCBA, echoed her sentiments. “I’m excited to give our ABA staff the
opportunity to further learn and grow through ACM’s collaborative model for ABA
service delivery. Our clients, their families and the Allegan community will also benefit
from ACM’s expanded capabilities and proven commitment to the communities it
serves.” During and after a transition period, Dr. Burnett will continue to provide ASD
diagnostic testing through Compass Wellness Center.
