What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

A growing population of young adults with autism do not fit well into the current service models. As Texana’s clients become teens and young adults, they age out of the services provided by public education and the Children’s Center for Autism, but still need assistance transitioning to productive, independent lives as adults. The individuals and their families are searching for full integration into the surrounding community, including access to competitive employment in industries of their choice. Texana’s plans for the Center for Advancement grew out of these young people seeking services that do not exist. The 2011 study “A Report on the Demographic Changes and Changing Needs of Fort Bend County” found that Fort Bend County had a lack of mental health care resources for low-income and uninsured citizens. Despite high median incomes in the county, wealth and insurance coverage inequality have created a dire situation for low-income citizens when they have a mental health crisis.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Children's Center for Autism

The Children’s Center for Autism is an individualized and intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment program for children who have autism. Children with autism face unique challenges as they typically have difficulty expressing emotions, connecting to others, understanding social boundaries, and initiating appropriate interactions. ABA helps children gain the skills they need to interact with others so that they can have their social, emotional, educational, and behavioral needs met in everyday settings like home and school.

This clinic-based program applies the principles of ABA to teach the children skills in the areas of appropriate behaviors, self-care, communication, social interaction, academics and more. Children have different needs and the intent is to teach each child the skills they need to be able to learn from a more typical learning environment.

Once children complete their one-on-one treatment, the Bridge Class provides an opportunity for them to participate in an integrated classroom lead by a certified teacher and attended by peers with and without disabilities. The class helps students learn valuable skills to help them transition in the future to a mainstream school setting. 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 Texana Behavior Improvement Center offers part-time Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) programs for children with autism to teach them the skills necessary to become more successful both at home and in community settings. Services offered include individual consultations with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, creation of an individual support plan, an after school program, and social skills groups for older youth.

The Texana Behavior Treatment and Training Center offers a short-term residential solution for children and adolescents ages 8-17 who have a diagnosis of an intellectual disability or autism combined with challenging behavior that could hurt themselves, their families, or their communities. The program assists families in maintaining their children in their family homes and avoiding placement in long-term care residential facilities.

The goal for the program is to return the children successfully to their own communities. As a condition of admission, families must agree to participate in training and to accept their child back into their home upon discharge from the program. Families are very involved while their child is staying at the Behavior Treatment and Training Center. They participate in numerous clinical sessions with their child and sessions where they learn techniques of positive parenting and applied behavior analysis procedures that develop desired behaviors, teach compliance, and decrease problem behaviors. Transition plans are developed to transfer successful intervention strategies and procedures to the family, school and/or provider.

The Social Connections Club helps teens and young adults with autism gain the soft skills needed to prepare for competitive employment and adult responsibility. Individuals with autism may need assistance to understand parts of conversation such as social conventions around greeting others, volume and intonation, initiations and responses in conversations, and staying on topic. Teaching teens and young adults with autism these and other practical skills like delayed gratification and money management, helps to prepare them to interact socially with others in the workplace. The group also uses “First Job Survival Skills,” a video teaching series that covers what supervisors want from employees and how work differs from school and personal life.

The mission of Project GROW Early Childhood Intervention is to educate and empower families of children, age birth through 3 years old with developmental delays by assessing and implementing appropriate training and/or services that support family resources. The program provides early identification and developmental programming for children with or at risk for developmental delays. Services are personalized to assist and enable families to support the child in developing new skills or improving on present skills and assist the family in meeting needs and developing resources. The program provides parent/ family training based on the belief that the parents are the primary teachers of their children.

Texana Center’s Behavioral Healthcare Clinics provide assessment, treatment, and supportive assistance to those affected by serious and persistent mental illness.

Texana Center’s six Behavioral Healthcare Clinics offer outpatient mental health services for children and adults including psychiatric evaluation, medication management, therapy/counseling services, primary care integration, targeted case management, psychiatric rehabilitation services, peer support services, family support services, supported employment, and supported housing.

Services are built on evidence-based interventions aimed at promoting recovery and resilience and can help those affected to plan a new course for their life – one which leads to increased well-being and growth. The goal is to promote stabilization and empower individuals to increase their success in leading functional and productive lives within their community, workplace or at home.

Services that target specific vulnerable populations include assertive community treatment for adults who have been hospitalized multiple times, intensive case management services for adults with mental illness who are currently on probation, intensive wraparound services for youth with behavioral health issues who are first encountering the juvenile justice system, coordinated specialty care for individuals 15 – 30 years of age experiencing a first episode psychosis, and Youth Empowerment Services (YES) to provide a continuum of appropriate services and supports for families with children who have severe emotional disturbances.

Texana Center’s crisis response services include a 24/7 crisis hotline that serves as the first point of contact for the Austin, Colorado, Fort Bend, Matagorda, Waller, and Wharton Counties. The Texana Mobile Crisis Outreach Team (MCOT) provides 24/7 intervention and assessment. Citizens of Texana Center’s six counties can call the crisis hotline at 1-800-633-5686. The crisis hotline also serves as the front door for the Texana Crisis Center.

The Crisis Center provides life-saving support for individuals with mental illness who need an immediate, intensive intervention to avoid self-harm or suicide. The Texana Crisis Center offers two culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, inpatient programs to help clients from all backgrounds. The Extended Observation Unit provides emergency stabilization for individuals who are experiencing an acute behavioral healthcare crisis and require 24-hour observation. For clients who can stabilize in a less intensive setting, Texana Center offers a Crisis Residential Unit. Clients in the Residential Crisis Unit attend at least four hours of classes each day covering basic life skills such as goal setting, social skills, conflict resolution, anger management, and relapse prevention through Chemical Dependency Counseling.

Texana offers programs that help adult clients with intellectual disabilities live productive lives in their own communities. Programs include 21 group homes and five learning centers, which offer social activities, help clients with basic life skills, and connect individuals to supported employment.

Texana also serves as the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Authority, which is the starting point for people seeking information about what services are available for persons with an intellectual or developmental disability. Service Coordinators help the families of clients with intake, eligibility, and navigating and accessing state programs. Clients served can be any age.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Texana Center strives to bridge gaps by offering services to meet the needs of those with intellectual disabilities and behavioral healthcare needs.

For those with intellectual disabilities, Texana Center seeks to maximize resources through existing service models and by forging ahead to create new models that meet the needs that clients express today. To increase services for those with intellectual disabilities and autism, Texana is constructing a new regional center on 14.5 acres in Northwestern Fort Bend County to expand our already successful services for children with autism and to build a continuum of services for teens and adults with autism and intellectual disabilities that will help them unlock their potential by gaining long-term, competitive employment.

Texana Center provides an array of services for those who experience severe, persistent mental illness. Services are offered through six community clinics, and in a crisis situation the Texana Mobile Crisis Outreach Team screens the client in the community. If the Mobile Crisis Outreach Team finds a client who needs more intensive short term support to stabilize, they receive assistance at Texana’s Crisis Center. Texana’s Crisis Center provides life-saving intervention for low-income and Medicaid patients with mental illness who need an immediate, intensive intervention to avoid self-harm or suicide through two culturally sensitive, trauma informed programs.

To meet the needs of community members with intellectual disabilities and autism, Texana Center has launched the Forward Together in Fulshear Capital Campaign. This new regional center, which will be built in three phases, will enable Texana to expand our proven, successful programs for children with autism, as well as create innovative, replicable educational programming that will provide adults with autism and intellectual disabilities the opportunity to learn in a community college-like setting and obtain competitive employment in a field of their choice. The campus will provide three major programs for children and adults with autism and intellectual disabilities.

Children’s Center for Autism will provide ABA treatment and parent/family training. Texana's programs focus on helping children develop skills in six key areas that impact their long-term emotional and educational outcomes, including appropriate behaviors, self-care, communication, social interaction, classroom inclusion, and pre-academics.

Center for Advancement will provide training for teens and adults in a community college-like setting where they will gain social and employment skills, explore their strengths, and create individual plans for career success.

Ready to Work will offer clients on-the-job training to achieve their career goals and practical, hands-on internships. Texana Bistro & Boutique will not be a permanent job placement for clients, but will serve as a stepping-stone to competitive employment in the community.

As part of pursuing excellence serving those with intellectual disabilities, Texana Center’s Authority Division (which helps clients and their families assistance with intake, eligibility, and navigating and accessing state programs) is pursuing excellence by working towards Accreditation of Case Management for Long Term Services and Supports Programs through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Behavioral healthcare is also at a crossroads in Texas as the sector shifts to focus on population health management, value-based care, and enhanced coordination of care and collaboration. Texana Center is responding by an increased emphasis on trauma informed care that addresses the needs of the whole person. Texana Center is also working on maximizing our use of technology by upgrading the electronic health records system that physicians and clinical staff use to guide treatment for Texana patients.

These steps help to prepare Texana Center to become a Certified Community Behavioral Healthcare Clinic (CCBHC). CCBHCs provide a comprehensive array of services needed to create access, stabilize clients in crisis, and provide the necessary treatment for those with the most serious, complex mental illnesses and substance use disorders.

Since 1999, Texana Center has been serving those with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities. Last fiscal year, Texana Center served over 14,600 clients. Texana’s 40 plus locations offer a huge array of services that meet the needs of diverse populations.

Texan’s Children’s Center for Autism is a recognized leader in offering ABA therapy to prepare children for school and life. The Children’s Center for Autism collaborates with other local organizations to evaluate and provide mentorship to other local ABA providers. This process is intended to provide education, support, and guidance to all local providers, such that the quality of ABA treatment in the Greater Houston Area is elevated for all children.

The Behavioral Healthcare Division provides treatment through six clinic locations, a Crisis Center, and a Mobile Crisis Outreach Team to respond to mental health emergencies. The Youth Empowerment Services Division provides services and supports for children who have severe emotional disturbances.

Texana has completed fundraising for Phase I of the Forward Together Capital Campaign. The facility will have capacity to serve 24 children and 100 adults per year through three programs. The Phase I building, Texana Bistro & Boutique, will include a coffee shop, café, and retail store that will sell items made by individuals with autism or intellectual disabilities. Texana Center will complete the Phase I building in 2020 to serve children and adults with intellectual disabilities and autism.

Texana Center anticipates receiving Accreditation of Case Management for Long Term Services and Supports Programs through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) in the 3rd quarter of calendar year 2020. Also in the 3rd quarter of 2020, Texana will implement an updated electronic health records system, which is a first step towards becoming a CCBHC.
