A history of TDLC

Founded in October of 2005, our original name was The ABA Therapist Network, and we have been delivering quality ABA services ever since. In the beginning, we specialized in in-home ABA and school shadowing services, but in December 2007 we opened our Learning Center and began offering multiple services in one convenient location. We are proud to have become one of the largest ABA providers in the Houston area to date, and we pride ourselves on being innovative in regard to utilizing the newest technology and what's new in the field.

Sitting on over 17,000 square feet, TDLC has ample room for our variety of programs, including multiple ABA therapy rooms, an open play area, a large classroom for our Social Skills program, and a speech therapy center. Call or email us today to schedule a tour of our facility!

our executive director

Michael Conteh M.ed, BCBA

Michael Conteh has been working with special needs children in in-home and clinical settings for over 10 years. Early in his career, he worked as a direct staff member at a residential facility, working with children and young adults with severe emotional and behavioral challenges. He has had the opportunity to work with children ranging from 18 months to 22 years old, including many children on the Autism Spectrum (including Asperger Syndrome), and children with ADHD or Down Syndrome. Michael prides himself on personally training his staff, and staying in touch with both direct staff and clients. He spends quality time training each staff member to ensure that your child receives the best therapy possible. As a consultant, his philosophy is that if you are not in close contact with your staff, you lose touch with maintaining quality therapy!

Michael is available for consulting, workshops, and staff or parent training. Please give us a call to discuss pricing and availability!
