The Westview School is a private, non-profit school for children with autism spectrum disorders. The school was founded in 1981 to provide a structured, nurturing, and stimulating learning environment for children with learning differences which prevent them from being successful in regular programs.
Today, the school’s student body is comprised of children ages two through fifteen, who have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD) or related Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
The program is unique in its ability to meet the needs of high-functioning children with autism spectrum disorders, not only offering a full academic program but also addressing the social and language challenges which make mainstreaming into regular classes so difficult. Enhancing self-confidence and building appropriate behaviors are an integral part of the program.
Our Founder, Jane Stewart, passed away in 2010. The dedicated staff, teachers, and therapists of The Westview School proudly carry on her vision. It will continue to be a place of hope, growth and learning for children with autism spectrum disorders.
The Westview School is located at 1900 Kersten Drive, Houston, TX 77043. The phone number is 713.973.1900 and the fax is 713.973.1970.
Historical Play - Upper Elementary and Middle School students entertain the whole school and parents with plays illuminating their studies in History and Geography. Plays and programs take place on the beautiful stage in Largent Hall.
Language Difficulty - Most children with autism spectrum disorders have some form of difficulty with language. At Westview, both receptive and expressive language difficulties are addressed
