Catapult Learning expands autism services with acquisition of CEG

Catapult Learning, a Camden-based provider of special education and instructional intervention solutions, announced Wednesday it has acquired Capital Education Group.

CEG is a Chantilly, Virginia-based provider of behavioral health services and private school programs for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and other specialized learning needs.

The acquisition, Catapult said, will enable it to integrate education and Applied Behavior Analysis services in hopes of improving outcomes for children with autism.

“We were immediately attracted to Capital Education Group’s outcomes-based programs and strong management team,” Jeffrey Cohen, CEO of Catapult Learning, said. “This acquisition enables Catapult Learning to provide more services to our students with autism spectrum disorders across the country, blending education and behavioral healthcare in a way that drives better outcomes for our students and their families.”

CEG currently operates a portfolio of programs, including three Auburn School campuses, multiple ABA clinics and an in-home program.

“This acquisition unites two like-minded companies that are devoted to helping children succeed,” Marina Major, president of Capital Education Group, said. “We’re excited to bring the resources of Catapult Learning to bear on the exceptional track record Capital Education Group has with the communities we serve.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
