WHAT IS APPLIED BEHAVIOURAL ANALYSIS?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a comprehensive approach that applies principles derived from psychology research to improve socially significant behaviors. It encompasses a range of procedures and interventions aimed at promoting positive behaviours, teaching new skills, generalising behaviours to different environments, and reducing harmful or interfering behaviours.
At the core of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the systematic collection and analysis of data to inform clinical decision-making. Over four decades of research have consistently demonstrated the effectiveness of ABA programs. Children who participate in autism programs based on the principles of ABA have shown remarkable and sustained improvements in various areas, including IQ, language development, academic performance, and adaptive behaviour. These outcomes surpass those of children who received no treatment, low-intensity treatment, or non-ABA approaches.
Lizard is a leading provider of ABA early intervention programs in Australia, offering specialised Social Skill group programs. These programs focus on developing social and communication skills that are crucial for your child’s success.
With centres located in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney, Lizard is the largest ABA early intervention organisation in Australia. We are dedicated to providing high-quality services and support to children with autism and their families.
We understand that every child is unique, and our team of experienced professionals is committed to tailoring our interventions to meet the specific needs of each individual. Through a person-centred approach, we create personalised treatment plans that address your child’s strengths, challenges, and goals.
Our Social Skills programs are designed to help children enhance their social interactions, build meaningful connections, and improve their communication abilities. These group sessions provide a supportive and structured environment where children can learn and practice important social skills through engaging activities and guided interactions.
At Lizard, we believe in the power of early intervention. Research has shown that early and intensive intervention can have a significant positive impact on a child’s development and long-term outcomes. By providing evidence-based interventions grounded in ABA principles, we strive to maximise your child’s potential and support their overall growth and well-being.
