Our therapeutic approach is based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and incorporates strategies that have been proven effective for helping children.

Assessment and Program Development:
One of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) will get to know you and your child in order to set initial treatment goals (e.g., development of skills such as communication skills, play skills, toilet training, cooperation and turn-taking, or a reduction in behavior problems) and develop an individualized treatment plan.

After first building a relationship with your child, a Registered Behavior Technician will use proven teaching strategies (combining "work" and "fun") to help your child build new skills. We work on skills until they can be used naturally in your child’s daily life. During each session, therapists will collect data on your child's progress.

Parent Training:
Since parents are the most important member of every child’s team, we will teach you the ABA strategies we are using with your child so that you too can use them to support your child’s development.

Data Review and Analysis:
The data and information collected during therapy sessions is used by your child’s BCBA to continually assess your child’s progress and tailor the therapy accordingly. The information about your child's progress is always available to you, and we will show you what it means.

Team Meetings:
You and your Lone Star Day Program team will meet monthly to review your child’s progress and discuss questions or concerns.
