Texas Language Learning Alternatives, Inc. (dba Capitol School of Austin) is a private, non-profit option for children with speech, language, and learning differences. Established in 1990, CSA is Austin’s first and only private, specialized program for children with primarily language-based learning difficulties.
CSA students have average or above-average learning potential, but are at risk for failure in traditional settings, because they process information differently than their peers. CSA addresses these differences by integrating both therapy and preschool/school age curriculum to maximize each child’s potential. The low student to teacher ratio and individualized attention allow our therapists and teachers to infuse language development and remediation into every aspect of a student’s day.
The dedicated staff provides a personalized approach which focuses on student's strengths and individual development. CSA’s language program is directed and staffed by masters-level Speech Language Pathologists or Special Education teachers, and is designed to provide intensive speech, language, and learning services. Speech Pathologists hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech and Hearing Association and are licensed by the State of Texas. Individual and small group therapy is also available through The Children’s Clinic at Capitol School of Austin.
Language is the foundation for learning.
Children with speech, language, and
learning difficulties often have average to above
average learning potential.
Many children with learning difficulties go undiagnosed
and experience self-esteem, social, and academic challenges.
Low student to teacher ratios enable individual student
needs to be met more effectively.
Early identification and intervention are fundamental to
successfully helping children with language-based disorders.
Students with speech and language delays learn most
effectively through evidence-based practices, including multi-sensory,
whole language, and literacy-based instruction.
