Elizabeth “Lizzy” Landers, M.S., BCBA is from Decatur, GA. She received her Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Kennesaw State University and her Masters of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis and Educational Psychology from Georgia State University. While in her Master’s program she completed several research projects on reducing gross motor stereotypies through the Wii video game system under the supervision of Dr. Laura Fredrick. Prior to moving to California to begin her time with ALP Lizzy ran a research classroom for Emory Autism Center’s Early Emory program (formally the Walden School) under the supervision of Dr. Gail McGee and Dr. Michael Morrier and completed a 1 year practicum in the Verbal Behavior and Severe Behavior Day Units at the Marcus Autism Center in Atlanta, Ga.

In December 2018 Lizzy relocated back to the metro Atlanta area to develop and oversee ABA services for ALP – her journey has been full circle and she is honored to lead the charge in GA. In addition to ensuring the delivery of compassionate care to each and every family Lizzy is passionate about daring leadership as well as sharing about ABA with the community.
