Company DescriptionABOUT US
Bayes Achievement Center (BAC) is a residential treatment center and day school program serving special needs students with significant behavioral difficulties, ages 6-22. We are licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS) and we are approved by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) as a non-public day school program. BAC is also accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC) as a Behavioral Health Care organization. This accreditation means that BAC meets the nationally and internationally approved standards of best practice.
We serve students with a wide range of exceptionalities including autism, emotional and behavioral disorders, and intellectual disabilities. The one characteristic common to all of our students is that the severity of their behaviors prevents them from being successful in less restrictive environments. These behaviors may include serious aggression toward teachers, peers, parents, and siblings, self-injurious behaviors, property destruction, run-away attempts, extreme oppositional and defiant behaviors, intense temper outbursts at home and school, etc.
For over 20 years, we've helped hundreds of students with these kinds of behaviors become successful academically and socially not just in our program but back home as well. In addition, we've worked closely with countless parents, teachers, and school district personnel to design programs and behavior interventions that enable them and the children they work with to successfully transition back home and thrive.
