September 5, 2023—Lakeway, Texas
—Easterseals Lonestar, a combination of Easterseals Central Texas and Easterseals North Texas, has expanded its successful Child Development Program into the Austin area by launching the Little Lonestar Academy in Lakeway, Texas. The new program hosted an open house on August 31 and is accepting applications for students of all abilities from six weeks to six years in age. The first students will begin attending the program on September 25.

The Little Lonestar Academy will provide developmentally appropriate curricula, experiences, and activities designed for optimal growth. Classrooms are staffed by professionals in the fields of education, child development, and behavior analysis. Under the supervision of a board-certified behavior analyst, the program provides Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for children with autism as well as kindergarten preparation for all children. Easterseals Lonestar’s flagship program in Carrollton is modeled off the Walden Early Childhood Center, developed by Dr. Gail McGee, emphasizing engagement, language, and social skill development.

“Our existing Easterseals programs have been successful, with 96 percent of children with autism in the program moving on to regular kindergarten, and typically developing children gain skills in problem solving and leadership in this program,” said Tod Marvin, President of Easterseals Lonestar. “We are thrilled that the Lakeway program is up and running and we will soon welcome our first class.”
