Seeing as this is a topic most individuals are not familiar with, this topic, podcast, and interview all can tie into creating a feature article to raise awareness on children with special needs. In more detailed terms, all throughout the school system, children are in dire need of shadows, CCW’s, behaviour and speech technicians at school. Most educational centers don’t have the resources that children with special needs need. With this field interview conducted, it showed what an ABA therapist main goal is and how it is brought out. The feature article topic of the importance of ABA therapists with children with special needs, will integrate all the important factors on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) community and how important seeking therapy is. To reiterate, this topic matters not only because special needs hold a special place in my heart, but the countless cases of children who don’t get the proper therapy at home or school to excel in their development is alarming.[supanova_question]

The people of the city are observed as health conscious so there is a major possibility that they will be fascinated towards the services offered by the company. The city is in Oakland County and the estimated population density is 2,514.34 per square mile. These kinds of cities are usually favorable for new businesses as the markets are not massive and it is easier for a new business venture to sustain within the market.
The food market of Troy has a vast competition among the organizations.

The threat of substitute is one of the core aspects that must be considered by a business. It is the most prominent factor that can affect the productivity of SafeMeal as there is always a chance of the presence product within the market. Therefore, SafeMeal must take care of this aspect and should make its product unique as compared to the others to avoid the issues relevant to the substitution. Moreover, the threat of new entrant can always be faced by any organization but the provision of quality products to the customers will maintain the customer satisfaction due to which it would not be possible for a new entrant to impact the competitive advantage of SafeMeal.

Moreover, the pieces of machinery must be selected with care and proficiency because a lot of costs will be invested in the purchase of the machines.
