Let us unlock your child's potential!
Under the direction of Dr. Summer Adami and her professional staff, Lone Star ABA Services provides evidence based, individualized services to individuals with developmental disabilities. These services take place in a clinical setting with supports offered to generalize skills to all natural environments. Using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the team creates treatment plans that target deficit skill sets.
Individuals enrolled in our clinic participate in organized activities on site as well as in their homes and community. Teaching occurs both in one-on-one focused sessions as well as small group instruction. At times, siblings of our clients, as well as other chosen neurotypical peers, will be on site for structured, facilitated play-based activities. All clients have an individualized curriculum and parents are highly encouraged to participate in as many activities as possible. Required family/team meetings are scheduled on a weekly basis.
Additionally, our clinic offers the opportunity for all clients to participate in equine enrichment activities. Our therapy horses are sound and quiet and will be available for reinforcing activities and generalizing skills taught in the clinic. Our equine program focus includes (but not restricted to) teaching social skills, increasing communicative repertoires, and building vocational skills. Participation in the equine program is completely voluntary; parents may elect to omit this from their child’s programming.
Our clinic also works with local school districts to provide professional, specialized services for students with behavioral challenges. We work with individuals receiving public and private funding sources. We are also in-network with some major insurance companies.
Dr. Summer G. Adami, Ph.D., BCBA-D
Dr. Adami began working with children with autism in 1998 while completing her undergraduate work at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC. After finishing her work at Meredith, she moved to the Lone Star state to complete graduate school. After completing her Masters degree, she went on to pursue her doctorate. All of her graduate work was completed at The University of Texas at Austin.
Over the past 17 years, Dr. Adami has worked in a variety of settings. She has served as consultant in school districts, provided direct support for inclusion services both in private and public settings, and has directed large scale community residential program for adults with developmental disabilities. Additionally, Dr. Adami has spent numerous years participating in Early Childhood Intervention programs as well as provided supervision and consultation for in-home programs for children at both ends of exceptionality (special needs as well as gifted and talented).
Dr. Adami specializes in severe challenging behavior, learning modalities, and communication modalities. She works tirelessly to ensure that all individuals under her supervision excel and meet their utmost potential. Dr. Adami will work collaboratively with professionals from other disciplines to design the most efficacious, empirically sound treatment package for all she serves.
While her formal training began in 1998, her love for individuals with disabilities was born on October 31, 1993 when her niece was born with a severe brain malformation. Her beloved niece lived just three short years; however, her abbreviated life shaped Dr. Adami’s future.
Working with individuals with disabilities is a life-long passion for Dr. Adami. She looks forward to the pleasure of working with your loved one and your family.
