Your Partner in ABA Therapy

What is the role of an ABA Therapist?

At Lizard Centre, we believe in the power of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) therapy to transform the lives of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), developmental delays, global developmental delays, ADHD, and other related conditions. ABA therapy is a scientifically proven approach to learning and behaviour change. It focuses on understanding and modifying behaviour through the application of behavioural principles.

Our highly trained and compassionate ABA therapists play a crucial role in the therapy process. They work closely with children and their families to design and implement effective learning procedures tailored to each child’s unique needs.
By utilising evidence-based strategies, your ABA therapist will help your child develop a wide range of skills, enhance their strengths, and overcome challenges.

The Science of Learning:

ABA therapy is grounded in the science of learning. Your ABA therapist will use research-based, socially validated techniques to teach new skills, promote positive behaviours, and reduce challenging behaviours. Through careful observation and data collection, they assess the child’s abilities, identify areas for improvement, and develop individualised treatment plans.

Skills That Can Be Developed:

At Lizard Centre, we understand the importance of targeting a comprehensive range of skills. Whether it’s language and communication, social interaction, academic skills, self-help skills, or behaviour management, our ABA therapists are skilled in addressing various developmental domains. Our goal is to empower children to reach their full potential and lead independent, fulfilling lives.

Working with Child and Family:

We recognise that the involvement of the child’s family is essential for successful therapy outcomes. Your ABA therapist will work with you collaboratively, providing guidance, support, and training on how to reinforce learned skills and generalise them to everyday life. We believe building strong partnerships with families can create a nurturing environment that fosters growth and progress.

We are your experienced ABA Therapist

All our ABA therapists at Lizard Centre are highly qualified professionals. They hold certifications such as Board-Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) or Certified Behaviour Analyst (CBA), ensuring they possess the necessary knowledge and expertise to deliver effective therapy. Additionally, our registered therapy technicians receive ongoing training and supervision from experienced BCBA supervisors, ensuring the highest standard of care.

We offer a range of services to meet children’s and families’ diverse needs.

Our industry-leading programs are founded in evidence-based practice, including Behaviour Analysis, the Skill Based Treatment and Positive Behaviour Supports. Each program is family-centred and tailored to the individual needs of your child. We have a strong focus on involving parents in the design and implementation of our programs.

Evidence-Based Approach:

At Lizard Centre, we are committed to evidence-based and socially validated therapy and teaching strategies. We believe in the power of individualised and child-driven therapy, where each child’s unique strengths and needs are carefully considered. Our approach is backed by extensive research and aims to help children and families develop the skill sets necessary for independent and fulfilling lives.
