The goals of this program are:
Adults 18 years of age and older, residing in Harris County, with a diagnoses of Asperger's Disorder or Pervasive Developmental Disorder. Adults must posses the cognitive ability to participate in the program. Individuals must also meet the criteria for Target Population, and have challenging behaviors that otherwise restrict their level of functioning in community programs.
The schedule may vary according to the needs and interests of the participants on any given day. Participants are encouraged to initiate socially appropriate, contextually relevant conversations.
The first step in

is a process defined by the State, and is not intended to suggest that
people with Asperger's Disorder have a diagnosis of intellectual disability)

During the admission process, the Coffeehouse Team takes
into consideration the consumer's right to choose their treatment options.
Participants are discharged from this program based on the following:
