Hope for Three presents first scholarship to Texana Center client

Shown (l-r) are: Darla Farmer, President of the Board for Hope for Three, presents the scholarship certificate to Esther G. (mother), Matthew G., Faustino G. (father) and Tyrell Price & Jenny Perry both Behavior Analysts with Texana Children’s Center for Autism.

Hope for Three awarded its very first scholarship to Matthew G., age 7 years, a Texana Center client who has autism spectrum disorder. Because of this grant Matthew will be receiving in-home Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services for six months. The grant will pay in-home therapists who will work with Matthew weekly to do assessments, ongoing treatment and program development and staff training by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.

Kate Johnson-Patagoc, Director of Texana’s Specialized Children’s Services commented “We are thrilled that Hope for Three was able to help Matthew and his family with this scholarship. Intensive ABA is the most proven effective treatment for autism. Unfortunately this can be expensive in the short term and out of reach for some families, but the payoff in the child’s progress is huge! Texana Center could not be more pleased that Hope for Three is able to help children this way”.

Hope for Three, a local non-profit organization with a mission to raise community awareness and provide educational resources and support to families with children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
