H.R. No. 69
         WHEREAS, The Katy Independent School District is celebrating
  the dedication of its Martha Lopez Aki ECI Project TYKE facility on
  October 18, 2021; and
         WHEREAS, Formerly the L. D. Robinson Pavilion, the remodeled
  25,000-square-foot building provides a thoughtfully designed
  center for the Early Childhood Intervention Project Teach Your Kids
  Early program, previously housed on campuses across the district;
  it includes classrooms, therapy rooms, evaluation rooms, offices,
  and other spaces, and it features inspiring murals as well as new
  technology, including smart panels, projection screens, and an
  enhanced security system; and
         WHEREAS, The facility is named after Martha Aki, who oversaw
  the district's Early Childhood Intervention Project Teach Your Kids
  Early program for nearly three decades before her retirement in
  2020; Project TYKE assists children with developmental delays or
  disabilities and their families, providing necessary support and
  resources in a dynamic, personalized process that reflects the
  preferences, learning styles, cultural beliefs, and priorities of
  individual children and their families; and
         WHEREAS, Under the innovative leadership of Ms. Aki, Project
  TYKE developed a group coaching model that proved so effective,
  especially for children on the autism spectrum, that her team was
  frequently called upon to host training events for ECI programs
  across the state; she also served as chair of the Texas Council of
  ECI Program Directors Consortia, facilitating a productive
  relationship between Texas ECI program directors and the Health and
  Human Services ECI state staff; in addition, she was a member of the
  Katy ISD Special Education Leadership Team and worked with state
  legislators and Texans Care for Children on initiatives benefiting
  ECI children; she was recently appointed to the advisory board of
  the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education
  Standards; and
         WHEREAS, High-quality early intervention improves outcomes
  for children, families, and communities, and this splendid new
  facility will allow the staff of ECI Project TYKE to provide even
  more effective services; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 87th Texas
  Legislature, 3rd Called Session, hereby commemorate the dedication
  of the Martha Lopez Aki ECI Project TYKE facility and extend to the
  program's staff sincere best wishes for continued success; and, be
  it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for the program as an expression of high regard by the
  Texas House of Representatives.
  Speaker of the House     
         I certify that H.R. No. 69 was adopted by the House on October
  14, 2021, by a non-record vote.
  Chief Clerk of the House
