WHAT IS APPLIED BEHAVIOURAL ANALYSIS?
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is the application of the principles of learning, derived from psychology research, to improve socially important behaviours. ABA is an umbrella term for a collection of procedures and interventions designed to increase positive behaviours, teach new skills, generalise behaviours to new environments or situations, and reduce behaviours that are harmful or interfere with learning.
One hallmark of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is data collection and analysis to guide clinical decision-making. The effectiveness of Applied Behaviour Analysis programs has been well documented through 40 years of research. Children who participate in autism programs based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) have been shown to make substantial and sustained gains in IQ, language, academic performance, and adaptive behaviour, better than those of children who have had no treatment, low intensity treatment, or non-ABA treatment.
Lizard offers specialised group programs called Social Skills focusing on social and communication skills in order to set your child up for success.
Lizard is the largest ABA early intervention organisation in Australia, with centres in Adelaide, Melbourne & Sydney.
