Early Childhood Screening is a quick and simple check of how your child is growing and developing. Between the ages of 3 and 4, screening can detect possible health or learning concerns, so that children can get help before they start school.

Austin Adult Learning offers free high quality education to adults who are serious about their learning. Classes include: all levels of English Language, GED and college Prep, basic math for college, and the Paraprofessional Training Academy.
