Founded in Dallas in 1976, the Autism Treatment Center (ATC) began as a group of six concerned parents with the same problem: their children with autism had been “aged-out” of their treatment programs and no longer had access to services or the support that they still needed. Putting their heads together, these parents went on to become the board of directors for the newly created ATC and worked together to foster a clinic that provides residential, educational as well as therapeutic services for people of all ages with autism.
Fueled by their own experiences, the founders of ATC made it their mission to assist people with autism in every aspect of their lives. Only a brief two years later, in 1978, another group of parents in San Antonio joined ATC to develop their second branch, followed shortly by a group home opening in Dallas. With ATC’s rapid expansion came the necessity for more program capacity, which led to their Texas Education Agency (TEA) certified educational program, Adult Services program and six more group homes.
