Children's Center for Autism - HHSC Children’s Autism Program

The HHSC Children’s Autism Program at Texana Center refers to a grant from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) in which some children may be eligible for a tuition supplement. The services received through the Children’s Center for Autism will be the mostly the same but the eligibility for this is program must be met.

Bridge Class (Preschool)

Children with autism have the opportunity to participate in an integrated classroom that is set up as a typical preschool year round to learn valuable skills to help them transition in the future to a mainstream school setting. Their participation in the Bridge Class may be part of their treatment to prepare them for a less restrictive environment. Peers without disabilities include Texana Center staff children as well as siblings of the children that are current in the program.

The class is centered on the development of social skills, group academics, classroom navigation and other school readiness skills. The children benefit from one of the top pre-K curriculums in the country and staff highly trained in learning principles and character building through helping others. The Bridge Class is overseen by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and a Certified Teacher and is a Licensed Child Care Center in Texas and meets all of the qualifications for that designation.

Professional Behavior Analysis Services

A board certified behavior analyst will work directly with your family in the home or clinic setting. An initial behavior assessment will be completed. Parents are required to be present for all sessions and sessions are typically 1 to 3 hours long and 2 times per week in either the clinic setting or in the family’s home.
