The Autism Treatment Center opened in San Antonio in 1978 as a school for children with autism. Today, our programs include a TEA-accredited school for students ages 3-21; 7 community group homes for children and adults; a Medicaid-approved outpatient clinic for speech, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and Occupational therapy; and a downtown satellite ABA clinic at the Children's Hospital of San Antonio.
In 2017, ATC San Antonio provided direct care services to 239 children and adults, trained 117 parents and 23 professionals on behavioral therapy, and assisted an additional 6,500 individuals with information and referrals. We are currently building a new Learning and Opportunity Center next to our outpatient clinic on Nacogdoches Rd. that will allow us to serve an additional 200 children and adults with autism and related disorders each year.
