Our enrichment programs include 1 hour of math, 1 hour of reading/language arts and 2 hours of social/communication skills.

Shout out to Chuck E. Cheese Arbor Walk for being so receptive to employing those with disabilities. Pearl (and I) have just gotten hired and the process was very welcoming.
Stay tuned for updates, and have a Chuck E. Day! Lol.

Pearl was a focused cleaning machine today! So proud of her. She went from one task to another without direction, took initiative on things not asked of her, and worked at a great pace.
Shout out to Old Navy Lakeline for supporting Pearl and giving her a safe and receptive space to grow and work in her community.

Hello everyone!
As we head to April 2nd, World Autism Awareness day, I want to shout out to Pearl and Madison!
Pearl is the " Clean Queen", and "Sizing " expert at Old Navy, where she is greatly supported. And Madison and I are working on purchasing and paying for her items with her allowance. #LifeSkills #Indepence #disABILITIES #QuestKidsRock

So incredibly proud of these two, and grateful to be able to work with them!

Whew, so glad last week is over!!
I got to get out with Pearl today and we decided to visit our friends from Old Navy. They were so excited to see her AND they had her 1 year anniversary pin for her! We're going to start working again but only short hours, thanks Covid. Old Navy has been super supportive of Pearl and other students. Old Navy+H-E-B=Happy Me!

Hello Quest supporters! In these trying times things with Quest Academy have been very different. I'm no longer able to job coach in the way that I used to due to Covid.
And while we can't work INSIDE H-E-B, we can sure wrangle some carts OUTSIDE on this gorgeous Austin day! Pearl brought in 63 carts AND sanitized!
Quest plus H-E-B= happy me!
Here's wishing you all a safe, healthy New Year! It IS going to get better.
Blessings and love to you all!

[12/28/20]   That moment you get to see a former Quest kid and student, who is now in a residential facility, but home for the holidays. Did my heart a world of good seeing her doing so well and very happy! I may or may not have ๐Ÿ˜ญ. "Tanya Mae" loves you "Shae Shae".

A great couple of days with Quest kids Pearl and Madison!
Pearl and I painted ornaments in the park and had some sweet kids join us
Pearl was appropriately social, and the kids loved her pushing them in the swings.
Madison worked on writing, shopped for dinner items, and donated toys to Brown Santa.. So proud of them both!

Happy early Halloween everyone! I've been working with Pearl, Madison, and Jordan! We've been focusing on Social Skills, Life Skills,virtual school, and of course pumpkin painting and cooking! Missing the Quest crew I can't see right now, but grateful to work with the ones I can.

Happy Saturday Quest supporters!
I haven't been updating much since we haven't been able to have camp, but here are some pics of the work I'm doing in home with some Quest students. Still focusing in life and social skills, as well as virtual school! And of course, gotta throw in a little fun! Pearl, Madison, and Jordan are lifting my spirits, and making me proud, daily!

Quest Supporters,

I am happy to announce that once again, H-E-B and the Tournament of Champions has provided a grant for Quest Academy of Austin! Without the support of H-E-B and my very supportive and generous friends, Quest would truly struggle.
Grateful and thankful,
~Tanya

.... this just in. Quest Academy of Austin is once again the very grateful recipient of the H-E-B Tournament Of Champions grant! This grant is critical to our summer camp program and in addition to the support we receive from the stores and Partners!
I was blessed to work for H-E-B for almost 21 years, and beyond grateful for all that I was given during my career. To still be so hugely supported by H-E-B means more than I can ever fully articulate. All you locals, shop at YOUR H-E-B and know that they make a difference, a Texas Big difference, in your communities!

Such a difficult time for me. This should have been our first week of summer camp but due to Covid-19, we had to cancel. I am sooo missing time with our youth. These times are so difficult in several ways.
Here are some pics from past camps. Hoping to resume for our July session. Hope you all are staying safe and healthy.
~Tanya

[05/11/20]   Hello Quest friends, families, and supporters,
I hope that you are all safe, healthy, and managing during this stressful time.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce we are canceling our June Quest Summer camp session due to Covid-19.
If Bethany opens back up by July, and it's safe to do so, we will try to hold a July session.
My staff and I will miss our students, but health safety comes first.
This crisis may hold us back for a bit, but we WILL come back because, to quote our camp cheer, "Who are we? Quest Academy!"
Stay safe and healthy,
~Tanya

Hello Quest supporters!
I've been feeling very nostalgic and missing my Quest work with our students so I put together a little "throwback Thursday" photo montage. Hope you all are staying safe and healthy, enjoying time with family, and managing during these difficult times.
Quest will recover and I can't wait to come back and work with our families and students, and to welcome new students.
Enjoy our flashback!

[04/04/20]   Hello Quest supporters!
I hope you all are managing and staying healthy during these uncertain times.

My hope is for us all to safely ride out this virus, and for Quest to be able to move forward doing the work that I love, with the youth that means so much to me.
Stay safe, stay healthy.

Hello everyone,
In these uncertain times, I hope that you all are staying safe, enjoying time with family, and able to meet all your families needs.
I am in the early stages of planning for Quest summer camp 2020 and will post dates/ times soon.
In the mean time, here's a pic of a student, Kristen, who just landed her first job as a hostess at Chili's!
Wishing you all well,
~Tanya

Hi y'all!
Wow! Just WOW! What a great couple of days it's been! Theo got an H-E-B name tag which is a step towards getting him hired, and Pearl clocked in today for her first official shift at Old Navy!
So proud of all the youth I work with, and grateful for our many supporters! H-E-B and Old Navy recognize and support what our youth bring to the table and I'm grateful beyond!

Hello everyone,
I've been battling the flu and I think I forgot to post this. The interview! Pearl did so well answering questions! It was a super proud moment for me. I may or may not have gotten teary eyed. LOL
She was mostly asked questions that we had practiced but was asked "have you ever made a mistake at work?" She answered that she had, what it was, and that she "fixed it".
Also, doesn't she look like the new "Morton Salt" girl? ๐Ÿ˜‰
#disABILITIES
Grateful and proud!
~Tanya

Hello Quest supporters!
Big ol shout out to H-E-B and Old Navy! Pearl is days away from being officially hired at Old Navy, and H-E-B is welcoming another student, and our goal is that Theo will also get hired.
Watching these youth grow and face their challenges, in fact, manage them to the degree they do, makes me swell with pride!
MY heartfelt thanks to My H-E-B and Old Navy for being Champions of my Quest Academy of Austin's students!
~Tanya

01/14/2020

Hip hip Hooray! Pearl (and I), got hired today! Well, still some paperwork and such but Old Navy is going to make it official! Also...I get to start working with a new student at H-E-B!
After an amazing career with H-E-B, this 2nd chapter in my life is the very best! And that I still get to Partner with H-E-B, makes it a total dream come true!

Yay for Pearl and Theo, and Quest and me!

Hello Quest supporters and families! Today was a special day for me and one of our students Pearl. Pearl got to meet two managers at Old Navy and she did so well answering questions, and even included a "thank you for your time" handshake just like we practiced! She will begin working there at the beginning of the year!
Also, mom has asked me to help with " girly" stuff like hair and nails so today we blinged her hair a little bit.
Such a great day!

Here's wishing you all a blessed and healthy and prosperous 2020!
Happy New Year!

Hello Quest supporters!
I had an amazing day with David and Pearl.
David is doing well at being mindful of traffic and customers as we bring baskets in from the parking lot. He is also showing initiative and doing things without prompts like removing trash from the baskets!
Pearl and I work on life skills and maneuvering in the community. Today she paid the gas attendant "I want $20 on pump 4", pumped the gas, and then we practiced interviewing for an upcoming interview. Handshake at end of interview "thank you for your time".
So incredibly proud of these two and fulfilled by this work!

Wishing you all a holiday filled with all the blessings and love of family and friends.

Greetings Quest supporters!
Look at Britt and Brian making things happen!
Britt attends Brookwood In Georgetown now and is doing BIG things including modeling, lol. While she doesn't attend Quest anymore, I luckily still get to job coach her. Sooo proud of her!

And today I attended Brian's last day of this semester at ACC! I get to enjoy Brian at Quest, as well as job coach him, and provide support as he attends college! Brian brought gifts to his classmates today.
Sometimes I still pinch myself for being blessed with this opportunity and to be a part of the lives of these youth and their families.
~Tanya

Hi everyone!
It's David and Pearl Monday!

David worked in parking lot today where we discussed safety, "eyes ahead", and responding to greetings from customers and employees. He also did a whole basket of returns! Amazes me how he's grown, he requires less prompts in jobs he's familiar with, so cool!

Pearl also worked at H-E-B doing returns and recovery. She has an eagle eye for detail ie " no salt added" "decaf", as well as spotting things out of place. We also went to the bank where we discussed why I was "depositing money" ie to pay bills. Whew, after all that work, we needed an ice cream treat!
Watching these youth progress, sharing moments with them, is the very best!

Breaking news!!! Another retailer ( not grocery, H-E-B is our one and only FOREVER), is coming on board! Brian will likely get hired there and Pearl will start temping there soon as a start! Thank you Old Navy!
