How we help your child

What makes us different

TDLC has three locations that serve primarily children 2 to 9 years of age. We are one of the few places that have ABA, Speech therapy, and Occupational therapy all working together to help a child make progress. Our ABA staff are trained as Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT certified) and we even have our own medical billers on site.

Houston Autism ABA Center

Our 17,000 square foot expanded learning center, in Houston, is unique in that we offer a wide variety of services in one place. Because of our one-stop multi-service approach, your driving requirements in the Greater Houston area can be minimalized.

Hope is Closer to Home

At Tangible Difference, it’s our goal to provide autism treatment that will make positive changes for your entire family. Now with additional locations in Katy and Sugarland, we can provide autism treatment and effectively serve families with special needs children by providing the same quality Applied Behavioral Analysis, Speech-Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Social Skills Classes we offer in Houston.

When it comes to treating Autism and Special Needs at Tangible Difference, hope is NEVER lost!

autism spectrum disorders

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ADS) are a group of developmental disabilities that can cause significant social, communication, and behavioral challenges. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that an average of 1 in 68 children in the U.S. have an Autism Spectrum Disorder. When a child is not reaching the expected milestones in development during infancy and early childhood, parents have cause for concern. After further testing and assessments, when a family receives the official diagnosis that their child has Autism, they are filled with questions on how to best care and provide treatment for their special child. Established in 2005, Tangible Difference Learning Center provides numerous programs designed to assist and train you in ways to help your child progress. We focus on the areas of communication, behavior, academics, and social skills to help your child reach his/her full potential.

What people are saying

"One of my favorite things is seeing the smiles on the therapists faces when they are able to exercise ABA principles with clients, and the clients respond accordingly after many training sessions."

~ Sara, Office Manager (290)

"Not all SLPs have an opportunity to work in a setting where they experience the opportunity of seeing a truly non-verbal client become a functional communicator. TDLC strives to make this experience a reality for our therapists, families and clients! Despite joining the TDLC staff as a "seasoned" SLP, I can definitely say that our clients have aided in my continued professional growth!"

~ Kenyetta, Lead Speech Language Pathologist

"In the course of life, one's path crosses in the most unexpected way with others, mine is profoundly impacted by the positive changes and possibilities of change in the world of Autism. Connecting a piece of the puzzle is so rewarding."

~ Sham, ABA Programmer
