We help children and their families
Lizard is a specialist in delivering life-changing therapy for children and adolescents.
For over 20 years, we have provided positive behaviour support and behaviour therapy to thousands of children across Australia.
We grow skills for children with developmental delays, autism or
behaviours of concern.
We understand that challenging behaviours are often a source of frustration and emotional distress for both the child and their parents.
We develop proactive strategies to reduce problem behaviours and replace them with postive alternatives.
We can help with aggression, self-harm, damage to property, non-compliance, elopement or social withdrawal.
How our programs work
Our programs are based on the latest evidence-based practices to achieve the best results.
We start each program by teaching the three foundational “learning to learn” skills of communication, toleration and collaboration.
Based on the child and family needs, we then deliver a tailored program of learning on new life skills such as communication, self-care, and social skills.
Nurturing Social Connections and Building Strong Relationships
Kindy or school often provide a challenge to children we support.
Our Lizard programs are based on teaching three foundational “Learning to Learn” skills of communication, toleration and collaboration.
These help greatly in kindy or school. Our therapists work with your child in daily care or school to help provide individualised support and skills.
Our programs focus on teaching and reinforcing social skills through structured practice and support.
This helps improve a child’s engagement with parents and siblings, peers at kindy or school, as well as in daily interactions.
