Our Mission

The Coryell Autism Center prepares adults with autism to lead meaningful, productive and independent lives. We offer both Supported Living Services and Focused Treatment Plans. Our commitment is to provide services and supports for individuals whose needs require flexible and targeted resources. We do this by following our core values.

Values

  • Respect. We respect individual’s choices and create a person-centered planning process.
  • Support. We support full access to the community, including work, leisure and recreation activities.
  • Dignity. We ensure and embrace the individual’s rights of privacy, dignity and respect.
  • Independence. We strive to maximize autonomy and independence in making life choices, daily activities, and the physical environment.

Vision

To give those who may not otherwise have the chances access to numerous community-based opportunities that can’t be found elsewhere.

Coryell has been a life-saver for my son, who’s never felt more accepted in the community. The staff is very understanding and caring–highly recommended!
