fter accumulating more than 25 years of successful training and consulting with thousands of private clients, public school districts, and Education Service Centers, Brenda M. Batts opened a new private school for children with Autism, and other developmental disorders August of 2006 in Plano, Texas.

We understand the unique needs of our students, and recognize that one curriculum does not fit all students with special needs, so we offer a unique academic and therapeutic approach consisting of highly individualized strategies to guide our students to success in all areas of their growth and development. Our staff’s combined 87 years of experience in the area of special needs, provides students with the type of learning that will make a difference in their lives.

Focus Special Education, an extension of Focus on the Future Training Center, offers workshops for parents, teachers, and school districts using  highly individualized techniques and strategies to teach new skills to our children with special needs. We offer workshops and participate in public speaking and training world-wide. Our training programs have been proven to be successful in our private school as well as among countless private clients, who contract us to provide training for their school districts.


 ur goal here at FOCUS is to design and deliver highly individualized training and workshop-based strategies that are geared to help parents and teachers acquire the necessary tools to help children with special needs become more independent.  Regardless of your child’s perceived limitations, he/she deserves to, and is capable of living a more independent life.

We develop and present custom workshops that can be delivered across Texas, the United States or world wide. Upon availability, we also evaluate public school classrooms and curriculum for children with Autism, down syndrome, mental retardation, and other disabilities.
