Providence Treatment Center (PTC) is a Texas Education Agency (TEA) approved non-public day school and treatment center located in Missouri City, Texas, a suburb southwest of Houston. PTC provides educational and treatment services for children, youth and young adults with learning problems related to behavioral and emotional difficulties. PTC specializes in working with individuals that have severe behavior problems related to the following diagnoses:
PTC was established in 1997 as a stepping-stone between the least restrictive environment (public school) and the most restrictive environment, i.e. residential treatment. PTC was designed to facilitate the return to the community environment. Thus far, PTC has had a great deal of success with reintegration back into the community.
Many parents have been able to return to work due to our schedule and our level of success with their child. PTC’s hallmark is an individually tailored school with a low staff to student ratio, highly structured environment with behavior treatment and an integrated educational, sociological and medical model.
The facility is on over one acre of land with mature trees providing a park like setting. There are two fenced play areas for use in our outdoor activities which range from playground equipment to organized play, i.e. volleyball, basketball, etc.
PTC has four classrooms, each equipped with their own computers and software, along with various educational materials ranging from books and puzzles to task work (e.g., real life situations). Additionally, each classroom has a private bathroom for ease in toilet training. There is also a recreation room that is used for our morning circle time where the students sing songs and discuss the day's activities.
