Avondale House is a United Way non-profit agency that provides educational and training services to children and adults with autism.
To that end, we operate a year-round TEA-approved day school where we serve over 75 students from more than 20 different school districts, up to the age of 21 years old. Each student receives specific education and training according to their individualized education and behavior improvement plans.
We also have a day habilitation program for adults 22 and older, who need a safe and nurturing environment to continue developing skills for independence. Clients participate in daily living skills and pre-vocational training through activities on campus as well as through community and volunteer outings.
The agency also operates three group homes, licensed by DADS, in southwest Houston for our clients who are unable to live in their own homes. Residents enjoy family-style life with weekend and evening recreation; as well as training in tasks such as laundry, housekeeping and cooking. Each client also receives support with medical needs and daily hygiene according to their abilities.
