Thirteen years ago Melissa Willa and Colin Davitian had a vision to build an organization that would provide the highest quality of behavior intervention services to children with autism and their families. On October 12th, 2005, they co-founded Gateway Learning Group.
The journey started with a few dedicated staff and several families who put their trust in Gateway. Company headquarters looked a bit different back then – a couch, a few chairs, a computer – located in a modest living room in Noe Valley, SF.
Today Gateway’s team of over 400 talented professionals advances the lives of more than 600 individuals with autism every day, with compassionate, evidence-based treatment. Gateway is now recognized as a leading provider of ABA therapy throughout the state of California. HBD Gateway!
