About Us

About Learning For Life Autism Centre

The Learning for Life Autism Centre (L4Life) was created as a not-for-profit organisation in 2004, as a way to address the inequity that existed in access to best practice early intervention programs based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) for children with Autism in Victoria, Australia.

Since that time our program offerings have grown to incorporate services for autistic and neurodivergent children from pre-school to those up to 18 years of age, as well as training for families, carers and educators to help support these young people throughout their learning journey.

We see our community as a Village, working together in a variety of ways to ensure that neurodivergent and autistic children recieve the best support possible. 

Our Vision, Purpose & Mission

Our Vision is for a world where all autistic and neurodivergent people can thrive and live the life they choose.

Our Purpose is to support autistic and other neurodivergent children to develop skills that promote independence and choice.

Our Mission is to provide children with high quality services underpinned by Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) regardless of their financial or social circumstances; conduct research that informs our service delivery; build awareness and understanding of autism, neurodiversity, and best practice ABA.

The Learning for Life Village

It takes a village to raise a child, which is why we work with a network of individuals and organisations to ensure the children we support receive the best support possible. 

We call this the Learning for Life Village.  Our Village includes children and their families, carers, therapists, health professionals, psychologists, schools, aides, educators, classmates, private donors, philanthropic organisations, volunteers and the NDIS. All working towards one goal: a world where all autistic and neurodivergent people can thrive and live the life they choose.

You can join our Village by donating, working with us, volunteering, partnering with us.
