Texas Autism Academy, which opened in 2017 in The Woodlands, announced it will open a second location at 32605 Tamina Road, Magnolia, in August.

The school is a collaboration between TAA and The Grove ABA, which provides applied behavior analysis for individuals with autism and other conditions. The new school will be a pre-K program with an option for half-day ABA services through The Grove. The part-time program is ability based with a focus on elements such as reading readiness, math skills, social-emotional skills and early learning in a small-group environment, according to the school. It also offers a 7-2 student-to-teacher ratio, individualized education plans and a board-certified behavior analyst.


The new location will also offer a program for ages 12-16 focusing on middle school- and high school-level Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills through project-based learning, according to the school.

An open house will be held from 9:30 a.m.-noon May 21 at The Woodlands location at 1009 Pruitt Road, The Woodlands. For more information, parents can visit https://bit.ly/openhousemay22.
