The Foundation for Autism Care, Education and Services provides evidence-based intervention and hope. By providing scholarships for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder are provided with evidence-based intervention and taught new functional strategies that improve outcomes for both child and family.
The recipients of FACES scholarships have used the funds for various things—tuition at schools which focus on ABA therapy, purchasing ABA approved learning aids for centers and schools, furthering ABA training for staff members, and tuition for summer programs at ABA centers and schools. Scholarships are for Greater Houston, Texas Area recipients only.
