Support Learning for Life

L4Life taught Jayden an immeasurable amount of skills that we still use to this day - including supporting Jayden to make choices and to persist when things become challenging. They guided us through the process of going to kinder and school. In addition to our therapists, the staff became beautiful friends and part of our family.

Language Use

We acknowledge there are many perspectives and personal preferences regarding the language used to identify people and their disabilities and abilities. We endeavour to show sensitivity and adaptation to the unique needs of individuals to present their identity in a way that is meaningful for them.

In some of our communication it is difficult to reflect all preferences for identification; however, our commitment in personal communications is to respect individual preference. We acknowledge there may be a difference for people in using the terms ‘person with disability’ or ‘disabled person’ and our language is adaptive and flexible, always with the intention of inclusivity.

We use both language conventions interchangeably and therefore refer to both autistic children and children with autism throughout this website and in our communications collateral.
