Empower Behavioral Health (“EBH”), a leading clinic-based provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), revealed in October 2023 that it has acquired The Grove ABA. This acquisition encompasses another esteemed ABA clinic serving the community of The Woodlands in Houston, TX. This strategic move positions EBH to further bolster its offerings of ABA therapy services across the expansive Greater Houston area, solidifying its commitment to providing exceptional care for children with autism.

EBH has earned consecutive 3-year accreditations with the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE), demonstrating the organization’s dedication to empowering individuals with autism and their families through quality services. EBH is at the forefront of delivering exceptional ABA therapy and autism services across Texas, setting a gold standard for quality care in the industry.

Founded in 2015, Texas-based EBH is a local market leader with 19 clinics across the state. The prevalence of autism spectrum disorder has increased sharply over the past decade, with recent studies suggesting that one in 36 children born today in America have autism spectrum disorder. EBH’s ABA therapy treatment programs are a leading, scientifically supported approach designed to help children attain maximum independence by focusing on core behavior and skills, such as verbal behavior and language, behavior management, self-help skills, social skills, and leisure skills.

The Grove was co-founded in 2020 by Rachel Grass and Amy Wood in The Woodlands area of Houston, Texas and has a strong reputation in the community of the greater Houston area. They serve clients as young as 18 months through adulthood in both home and community settings, offering full-time and part-time services, consultation services, family education, and more.
