At Lizard, our team can support your child’s behaviour and help them build their social, communication and learning skills using effective, empirically supported and evidence-based strategies.
Our programs utilise the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behaviour Support, which have been scientifically proven to help children develop to their full potential.

ABA and PBS: the differences and similarities explained
In recent years, there has been some debate over whether Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a considered a separate discipline from Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), or if PBS is simply an evolution from the current ABA practices.
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)
Virtually all scientifically supported interventions for autism spectrum disorders are based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). ABA is the application of learning theory to support meaningful changes in social behaviour. ABA has been proven to be effective as a treatment for kids with autism in teaching them new skills and building functional independence.
