The Assistive Technology program (also known as our Removing Limits Through Technology program) at Ability Connection Texas is an innovative program that educates children and adults on how to use assistive technology to be more independent in their daily lives. This program features an assistive technology lab with a variety of computer-related and other technologies along with training opportunities.
The Early Childhood Education and Development Center at Ability Connection Texas is one of the most exceptional educational experiences available for children with any type of physical or intellectual disability. The Center offers a high-quality preschool education to children ages 18 months to 6 years of age, and operates Monday through Friday, 7am to 6pm, year round. Instruction emphasizes the development of motor, social, adaptive and language skills in order to prepare students with disabilities for Kindergarten.
The Center provides a modified curriculum that allows each child to strengthen their educational skills. Students are assessed using a developmental inventory to identify strengths and opportunities for growth. Based on the outcome of the assessment, individualized goals are developed in order to address each child’s educational needs.
The IMPACT program at Ability Connection Texas is a goal-driven day program for adults with disabilities. This program provides individuals ages 18 and older the opportunity to attain personal goals through life skills education, personal growth training, recreation and leisure activities, community outings, and socialization.

Our IMPACT program is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
