About The Helping House

Our primary purpose is that of providing early intervention services to local children with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum. A full-day private school program is offered during the school year. A Summer Clinic is available for two four-week sessions during June and July. In addition to on-campus services, behavior consulting and in-home training are also available on an individual basis. Our goal is to provide networking and support for all families in the Deep East Texas area who are affected by autism, whether your child is a full-time student at The Helping House or not.
