It’s hard to believe we’re almost a quarter of the way into 2023! Here’s a look back at February (in case you missed anything!) and what Rethink has planned for March.

We had a blast in San Diego at the ABAI Autism Conference!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth and joined us for happy hour! We learned so much from the speakers and enjoyed hearing your feedback as well!

One of our highlights? Listening to the panel discussion on Difficult Conversations about ABA as it Relates to Autism Intervention.

Employee Spotlight

Fernando Orfila, VP of Product

Lives In: Mentally, on a beach paradise…in reality, Atlanta, GA
Family: Toooo many pets… I think my house can get a tax exemption as an Animal Shelter. My daughters have 3 cats and we have 2 dogs.
Favorite food: Ice cream, and my belly can attest to it!
Favorite singer/band: When I was younger, U2. Now I’m very eclectic.
Favorite TV show: Misfits. If you have not seen it, you have to. It is a British dark comedy show (with funky superheroes, or supervillains… your decision 😉)
