Mission Statement

The Arbor School in Houston provides intensive educational intervention with a 2:1 student:teacher ratio, at the least possible cost to parents, for children evidencing developmental delays or those at risk due to diagnosed handicapping conditions. The Arbor serves children with all forms of developmental disabilities, birth through age eighteen without regard to handicap, religion, race, color, sex or national origin.


The Arbor's primary goal is to assist infants and young children in developing motor, social, self-help, communication, and problem-solving skills that will permit the greatest degree of independent functioning.

Study after study has shown that intensive, well-designed educational intervention improves the long-term prospects and quality of life for developmentally disabled children. The Arbor School has achieved significant success with hundreds of Houston area handicapped children since its founding in 1988.

The Arbor School vision has always been about reaching area children with special needs who need a loving environment, coupled with intensive intervention for achieving their individual educational goals.

The Arbor School is a great place to be a volunteer. The teachers are very professional and the teaching methods are very interesting to learn. I am specialized educator in France and volunteering in The Arbor School is a real opportunity for me to work with a dedicated team. I highly recommend to be volunteer in this institution for someone interested to work with children with special needs!

Upon retiring, I wanted to volunteer in some capacity..After visiting the Arbor School I recognized the wonderful work the dedicated teachers and aides were exhibiting I decided to offer my help. For the last 5 yrs.my once a week commintment has been challenging but so rewarding. I truly feel I've received much more than I have given. The staff,teachers,etc are all great...but most of all the children are the best!
