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.
Did you know that there are currently 2.1 million people in Texas that have some type of disability? Add to that the following facts: senior citizens are living longer and facing physical disabilities as they age, veterans will continue to return home in need of support and therapy for acquired disabilities, and more cases of cognitive disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder are being diagnosed each day. With these statistics, it is clear that adults with disabilities and those who care for them need supports and services that will meet their needs for long–term care, autonomy and independence.
Ability Connection Texas has over 58 years of experience in providing essential programs and services that empower adults with disabilities to live the best life possible. Included in our Adult Services are the following programs: IMPACT, Assistive Technology and Residential Services. These programs enable adults to lessen or overcome the effects of their disabilities, to enjoy greater freedom and the benefits of a supportive community of friends and professionals.
