The Austin Plastic Surgery Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide sustainable surgical care and therapy to children born with cleft lip and cleft palate both in Central Texas and Latin America. One in 700 children is born with a cleft lip or palate, which impacts their ability to communicate intelligibly, receive proper nourishment, and their overall quality of life. Austin Smiles, in collaboration with local and in-country entities, aims to develop a continuum of care to identify and treat these children as early as possible. In Central Texas, we provide wraparound supports including therapy services, surgery care kits, referrals and other assistance for over 800 children annually who are undergoing surgery at Dell Children’s Medical Center.
Founded by parents of an autistic son, One of the Kids aspires to provide a better approach to autism treatment for children with ASD. Caring for kids with autism takes commitment — from therapists, from instructors, and from family members. But therapy doesn’t have to feel like work. We believe self-discovery is essential for development. Basically, we think kids should be kids. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is our foundation. We provide a naturalistic approach tailored to the needs of our kids and their families, targeting essential social skills that support continued growth. Our interdisciplinary treatment encourages kids to create, cooperate, and play in a natural environment — designed with relaxing spaces that foster exploration.
