Our Team

Every child at Lizard has their own dedicated therapy team – and parents/guardians are an integral part of it.  Lizard applies a multi-tiered supervision program to ensure children’s programs are running as effectively and efficiently as possible.

A tiered-service delivery model has been shown to be a primary model of achieving many of the significant improvements in cognitive, language, behavioural and adaptive domains documented in peer reviewed research.  It also provides a cost-effective model of service delivery. The team providing services will be a mix of staff based on the individualized child’s needs.

This team of professional therapists has the right combination of expertise to design and implement the intervention program. The team take a Transdisciplinary approach working alongside Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Parents and Family Members.
