About ART

About ART

Locally owned and operated, Autism Response Team has been serving the special needs population of North Texas for nearly a decade. ART provides a unique curriculum designed to enable individuals with special needs to participate in life’s activities. We provide services across clinic, home, community, educational settings, and telehealth service delivery models.

Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts will carefully craft an assessment-based intervention to address these challenges, and thus, increase the functioning of the learner in their daily life. We aim to involve the whole family and provide education regarding the autism diagnosis to empower our families for hope and optimal outcomes. We have a passion for progress and strive for success across all environments, developmental stages, and ages.

Coordinated Management of Care

Autism Response Team Texas Model of ABA-Coordinated Management of Care (ART-CMC) involves a concerted effort to integrate the work of general physicians, developmental pediatrics, pediatricians, psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists and speech therapists as well as teachers. Patient’s care is viewed as a multidisciplinary work.

Patients generally receive an initial assessment from a developmental pediatrician or clinical psychologist to rule in/out the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (DSM-IV TR). Individuals with severe behaviors will receive a functional analysis to determine the function of their behaviors and develop a function-base intervention. These individuals will also receive an evaluation from their psychiatrist for psychiatric assessment and intervention.

With the above model in mind, what will be presented in the following pages is the protocol of applied behavior analysis practiced by Autism Response Team ABA services. This protocol is intended to demonstrate the mechanism of clinical quality control of care provided by ART.

“SEE” as a Model Guiding ART ABA program

“SEE” is an acronym  for safety, efficacy, and efficiency.

Autism Response Team is committed to ensure the safety of each patient who may come to its service delivery attention. Direct care staff staff and their supervisors are trained to be aware of their “mandate to report” responsibility. Direct care staff staff and their supervisors are further trained in the techniques of NCPI to ensure that in the events that a patient becomes physically aggressive manage the patient and themselves as safely as possible.

Efficacy stands for treatments that is effective and will enable the patient to move toward independence. Supervisors and direct care staffs are trained and monitored to ensure the programs they develop and implement for each patient is appropriate and produces the utmost effect in terms of outcome.

Efficiency stands for treatments that are enabling the patients to reach their goals as quickly as it is possible. Supervisors and direct care staff staff are mindful that services provided to each patient are not only effective

Vinson Family

We started ABA Therapy with ART a little over two years ago. We were out of options and just completely exhausted as parents when a friend suggested ABA therapy for our son. Our son at the time was 9 years old, not able to read/write, in a self-contained “Life Skills” classroom and his behavior was out of control at home. He was so aggressive and physical with us on a daily basis including his younger brother. We were out of options as well as his team of Doctors and we felt like “bad” parents. We were not able to go to public places as a family for fear of how our son would behave. He would scream, hit, bite, punch, spit, kick, pull hair, choke, etc. to any of his family members.


ABA started and we were taught a different way of parenting. Having therapist to stand beside you and almost “co-parent” with you was a feeling I can’t describe. We felt empowered, relieved, validated and hopeful just to name a few. We have learned so much from ART and can’t begin to describe what they have done for our family. I am proud to say my son is currently reading, in a resource classroom and fully included in all general education classes. My son has not physically assaulted a family member or therapist in over a year. We have been blessed with an amazing team at ART that has given us a chance to be a “family” again. We go places now that we never imagined we would be able to go with my oldest son. My family often comments on how far our son has come since starting ART and they are just amazed. We can’t even begin to describe just how life changing ART has been for our family. My son wouldn’t be who he is today without ART and we can’t imagine the path we would of taken had they not stepped in.

They have helped my son and family out in numerous ways. They have helped us from his behavior plans, accommodating our schedule as well as helping him academic wise. They are always willing to change and work with us on what’s best for our family and we have learned to communicate with our son that we didn’t know how to do before. They are awesome!

Jennifer Vasquez

I have a 6 year old child, and have received services through Autism Response Team for the last 2.5 years. This is the most dedicated team that I have experienced. Lisa Mousselli will respond to messages at 10pm and 6am to support my family. The ABA technicians have come to my home at 6:30am just to help me with the struggles of waking my child up before school. They have stayed at my home until 8pm to help get him to sleep. I cannot thank ART enough for what they have done to improve Caiden's future. He now talks and plays with friends. THANK YOU for what you have done.
