Your child has been diagnosed with autism… What’s next?
It’s never too late or too early to begin making progress with behavior therapy. The earlier the intervention, the better the results.
Your child will likely learn differently than others, but with the right treatment and encouragement they will be able to make academic and social achievements in their own unique way.
Our clinic-based program creates an environment where children with autism can learn the skills and behaviors they need to succeed socially, academically and in many other aspects of life.
Who Are We?
The Behavior Therapy and Learning Center (Behavior TLC) is operated and owned by two dedicated and caring Board Certified Behavior Analysts. We are passionate about providing services of Applied Behavior Analysis for our clients. We work with individuals with autism and other intellectual or developmental disabilities, as well as their families.
We are located in the Greater Houston area, with offices in Northwest Houston and Clear Lake, Texas. Our services include after school social skills programs, a clinic-based day program, school consultation, parent and teacher training and an Applied Behavior Analysis private school, Grand Oak Academy, where we provide a full academic curriculum along with individualized goals with daily progress tracking on academics, social skills and behavior.
Our day program and social skills programs offer a ratio of one therapist to each student; and Grand Oak Academy holds a ratio of one teacher to three students, which makes for an optimal learning environment.
Grand Oak Academy
The comprehensive curriculum in our Grand Oak Academy Applied Behavior Analysis private school allows us to implement common core standards and accommodate the needs of each individual student.
We know that every child is different and learns in their own unique way – So we tailor our therapy and academic curriculum to offer individualized support.
Who Can We Help?
We work with students with a range of special needs, including Asperger’s, autism, speech delays and other developmental and intellectual disabilities. A diagnosis is not required to apply for admission (although it will be required for your insurance company for reimbursing expenses.)
We have helped a wide range of children with different developmental disabilities, so if you feel your child could benefit from our treatment give us a call today, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that will help your child to succeed to their full potential. .
We Educate with Positive Reinforcement
We believe it’s important to teach children using positive reinforcement. Our first form of treatment will always be to positively reinforce appropriate behaviors rather than focus on the negative behaviors. Positive reinforcement is encouraging, builds confidence and motivates students to succeed.
Everyone is Welcome
We accept all clients who could potentially benefit from our services, no matter their age, diagnosis or the severity of their behavior. We will work together with each client and their family to develop a personalized, one of a kind therapy program.
We Accept Insurance
When it comes to well-being, mental health is just as important as physical health. Many health insurance companies are now offering coverage for behavior therapy treatment, such as the customized personal therapy we offer for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis. You will need an official medical diagnosis in order to qualify for insurance coverage. Contact us to learn how therapy can be covered on your insurance plan.
Your Child’s Therapy is Unique
We know that everyone is different and what works for one child might not work for another. We take the time to get to know each of our clients so that we can provide therapy that is individualized to each child. We will continually assess the child’s progress in order to make sure we are helping them to develop in a positive way.
We believe the idea of “teaching to the middle” leaves many children without the education they need. This is why we focus on individualized education plans for each student. Our students will receive all of the same benefits that they would get in a traditional school environment, while they continue to learn at their own pace through unique and individualized instruction.
You’ll Be Kept up to Date
Our mastery criteria and data collection is rigorous and more accurate than most school systems. We are constantly monitoring Behavior Intervention Plans and Individualized Education Plans, to ensure that your child is progressing properly. You will be provided with a monthly report card and quarterly progress notes allowing you to stay up to date with achievements and benchmarks.
Your child will also not need to adhere to the standardized state testing of the public schools because they will be aligned to Applied Behavior Analysis data collection systems that ensure maintenance, generalization and mastery.
Teamwork is Important
We value working as a team with parents and caregivers in addition to outside professionals. Because we know that the more we work together, the better we will be able to assist our students with development and behavior therapy. We always welcome any feedback and questions, and encourage you to be active and engaged in your child’s learning process!
