Our sons were in pre-school and we knew something was different about them. When the diagnosis came in for each we knew that life would be very different going forward.
We were once in the same place as you, a child with Autism and the parental desire of ensuring they got the best treatment without breaking the bank.
Children with Autism and their families need a lot of help. We have lived it and know what a long, challenging but rewarding experience it can be. Our passion is to help people reach higher levels with less effort.
We want to change the face of Autism treatment, from basic management to the final results. Gone are the paper and binders, all you need is a browser and the rest is easy.
We believe that work should be fun, so it seems a lot less like work. This shows up in our company activities as well as the product.
What’s with the Squirrel?
The squirrel is our mascot and embodies the fun, friendly atmosphere we have created here at ABAKiS. We want others to have the same success so naturally it became our logo.
We are all about building communities. Your child's team and family, and other families just like yours, are the real foundation of ABAKiS. Starting from there, we want to grow that community to include other family members, friends, teachers and anyone you value in your child's life.

At the time we worked for the same company and often discussed the challenges we faced raising children with Autism and how to ease some of them.
That was 10 years ago and did not have the time nor energy to undertake what is now ABAKiS. We both figured that by the time we could get to it there would be several solutions available. Much to our surprise nobody has addressed the issues related to Autism treatment other than to put the data into spreadsheets or rudimentary phone applications.
The current and future development of ABAKiS comes from our aspiration to make life better for children with Autism as well as easier for parents and caregivers.
