Effective in-home therapy using the power of people and technology.
Continuing Support for Your Family
Under the latest government release (24 March 2020), speech pathology services, along with ABA services are deemed as an essential service. As such, we are currently still open for in-centre services at the Lizard Centres – Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.
Through this turbulent time, we do encourage families to continue with face-to-face therapy as much as possible. However, we understand that you may become unsure about attending in-centre services. So, we are excited to introduce Lizard Telehealth.
This adaptive service will allow existing clients to continue therapy with their Behaviour Therapy Team or Speech Pathologist. If you are a prospective client who is currently on the waiting list, we can offer Telehealth services to begin identifying your needs and developing your therapy program, until you are accepted into the intensive face-to-face program.
Telehealth is the application of telecommunications technology (via use of skype/hangouts/facetime or the telephone) to deliver clinical services at a distance by linking our expert clinicians and therapists to clients and caregivers for the purpose of consultation and intervention.
NDIS supports the use of telehealth.
