Our Great Staff

February 6th, 2018

At LoneStar Solutions, we have a great set of staff, who are working daily to teach and train their 1:1 assigned children.  Workers are dedicated to engaging the child in learning skills that are on the treatment plan, and in keeping the family informed each day in written and verbal form on the progress. Teams of staff work together to keep ideas fresh.  Our BCBA is on site and sees each child to bring further direction to the programming. Our goal is to help the child progress in needed life areas, and translate this to home and community. Over a dozen staff are working with children.

Our ABA program has operated for over 8 years, and we have the expertise to call on for meeting the needs of many types of children.

Our next family group meeting and training is on Wednesday 2/21/18, from 4:45 to 7:00 in the evening.  Parents not already working with LoneStar Solutions are welcome. Contact us at 817-265-2344 for more information.
