Welcome to the Rethink Benefits Blog

1 in 6 kids have a life-long diagnosed developmental disability (like autism or ADD), and their caregivers struggle to balance work and life. As a result, caregivers experience 2.4x higher rates of stress and anxiety, poorer physical health, and 4x the medical expenses.

Rethink Benefits is the first and only global solution providing Fortune 100 companies and public sector, government and non-profit organizations with training and support for employees caring for a loved one with a developmental disability or undiagnosed challenges with learning, behavior or socialization. We offer caregivers 24/7 virtual teleconsultations with expert behavioral clinicians and online evidence-based training and resources they need to teach their loved one skills, address problem behaviors, collaborate with the school and clinicians, and navigate today’s complex environment.

Rethink also recently launched the Neurodiversity Inclusion Center, offering e-learning modules and a clinical support system to train HR and management about the neurodiverse community.
