Lake Pointe Resource Center & Academy
Lake Pointe Granbury serves individuals affected by Autism, ADHD, and related neuro-developmental learning differences through community outreach and a private therapeutic K-12 special school. Being 501 (c) (3) organizations, we do not receive any Federal or State funding. We depend on contributions, foundations, and other private funding support to keep our services available to children and families in need.
Our Story: In 2012 Steve and Madalyn Cano embarked on a mission to help families like their own. Raising a child with an invisible disability is one of the greatest challenges a family will experience both emotionally, spiritually and financially.
Through Lake Pointe Resource Center, the Cano's were determined to provide a way for other families to connect and feel supported within the Hood County community. LPRC provides free parenting support groups, parent training and advocacy support. LPRC is often involved in community events to raise awareness of autism and related learning differences as well as providing opportunities for highly specialized services to be available within Hood County.
Lake Pointe Academy, is purposed to provide an affordable highly specialized therapeutic school, not otherwise available within the Hood County area. We serve children ages 6 - 22. What’s unique and different is how LPA bridges evidence-based research from the neuro and cognitive sciences in teaching, learning and behavior, and embeds social, cognitive and emotional regulation interventions, along with naturalistic ABA principles for lasting behavioral change at a very low student to teacher ratio.
The Mission of Lake Pointe Resource Center & Lake Pointe Academy is important because:
1 in 68 children is identified with learning challenges rooted in Autism Spectrum disorder. This represents a 30% increase in just two years (CDC,2014, 2016).
1 in 6 school age children is challenged with an invisible learning disability such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Auditory and Visual Processing deficits, NVLD.
Many children are not provided the full scope of services they genuinely need for long-term change. Let’s face it, our public schools are awesome, yet they are not designed to be THERAPEUTIC! In addition, many students who don’t fit within criteria for services may be silently struggling through school. Oftentimes, this leads to depression, social problems and mis-understood behavioral responses that become patterned behavior.
MOST OF ALL, research is CLEAR: 87% of students who receive appropriate intensive and timely intervention can build the skills they need to overcome challenges in how their “disability” may affect them.
Lake Pointe Granbury fills a gap between our traditional behavioral health & education system through providing a specific and uniquely designed therapeutic education program and community resource support that is centered on prevention and remediation that also includes free parent training.
We receive no governmental or state funding. School Tuition is on a private pay basis. Discounts and scholarships are available and based on Grants, Corporate and Public charitable contributions. Both Organizations are registered 501(c)(3) corporations.
