The school for high-functioning children with autism spectrum disorder

Clinical Services

The Stewart Center is a full-service psychology clinic open to the Houston community. Services include:

Assessment and Treatment of Neurodevelopmental Disorders including ASD, ADHD, ID and Learning Disabilities from early childhood to adulthood.

Educational assessments to determine levels of academic achievement and identify areas where educational modifications and supports are needed. These are provided by Jennie Sciba, M.Ed., a Westview teacher and certified educational diagnostician.

Speech and language assessments to identify delays or disorders in speech production, language development, and/or difficulties in social pragmatic interactions. These assessments are provided by Westview speech therapist and licensed speech and language pathologist, Jennifer Jordan, MS CCC-SLP. Jennifer is also certified by the Hanen Centre to offer parent training in the Hanen programs “It Takes Two To Talk,” “More Than Words,” and “Learning Language and Loving It.”

Developmental, psychological and neuropsychological evaluations to identify diagnoses or strengths and weaknesses that may affect how a student learns. Our staff can also provide updated treatment recommendations and assist with academic planning.

Therapeutic groups to teach children and adolescents the skills they need to successfully manage their emotions and navigate the social world. Parent and sibling support groups are also available to meet the unique needs of families with children with autism spectrum disorder, and social skills groups are also offered. Groups are  facilitated by professionals with graduate-level training and supervised by Dr. Natalie Montfort.

Individual therapy or coaching to help children, adolescents or families reach their potential and overcome obstacles. Individual Therapists have expertise in autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, trauma, grief and loss and adoption-related problems. Therapy or coaching is often short term and solution focused.

Occupational Therapy is offered on campus by Texas State licensed Occupational Therapists trained in areas specific to autism spectrum disorder including sensory integration, neurodevelopmental techniques, therapeutic play, daily living activities and “Handwriting Without Tears.” Treatment centers on sensory integration, fine and gross motor coordination, motor planning, visual perceptual and visual motor skills and handwriting strategies. OTs work with staff to modify instruction and/or classroom environments to accommodate special needs of students. These services are billed separately from tuition.
