The Arizona Autism Story
Our founders joined forces years ago, like all great stories, through a mutual pursuit to help others. The intimate connection in the beginning that kick started it all was one specific boy… Tayven, the son of one of the founders.
When one of our owners, Ryan “Ryker” Martin first discovered his son had Autism, he naturally sought out the best Autism therapy care for Tayven. Ryker soon discovered that there wasn’t one place to turn to for all of his son’s pediatric therapy needs. That’s when he met his son’s new master level Occupational Therapist Ryan Sherman and everything changed.
With Ryan’s therapy skillset and Ryker’s marketing acumen together their passion for helping Tayven sparked the flame to redefine the entire Arizona Therapy Industry! Their goal was to create a helpful agency that brings all of the necessary and important pediatric therapy and in-care services under one roof.
That’s when Arizona Autism was born.
“From day one, I knew Arizona Autism had to be different in our approach to pediatric therapy and how we employ all our therapists and caregivers. Happy and fulfilled employees pour their heart and soul into our clients’ lives, and that’s what truly matters. Arizona Autism is a Christian based company, so by putting Him first, we're putting the kids first.

Who & How We Help
At Arizona Autism, our reason for existing is simple: WE LOVE KIDS. Everyday we strive to fulfill our mission to provide the best possible pediatric therapy services available to children with disabilities in the entire state of Arizona.
Our pediatric therapists and caregivers are the heart of our company. They are committed to helping children with Autism and other disabilities achieve independence through the development of fine motor skills, problem solving, socialization, self-care and communication skills, sensory integration, and attention development.
The families we work with are some of the most incredible people you’ll meet. If you want to see how powerful love is, all you have to do is look toward a mother, father or guardian who is dedicated to seeing a child with a developmental disability thrive.
There’s a reason we are the most trusted pediatric care agency in the state...
Our pediatric care therapists are devoted, diligent and dependable.
All our therapists are fully licensed in Arizona and undergo a thorough background check before they can #Work4TheBear.
We offer both full spectrum pediatric therapy care services and in-home caregiving, including respite care that provides parents with the breaks they deserve.
We understand the breakdowns and breakthroughs parents and guardians go through when caring for a child with autism; it’s why one of our owner’s sons was the inspiration behind starting Arizona Autism.
We believe every child can thrive and achieve independent through the development of important life skills.
‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
