University Work Placement Program

A career as a Behavioural Therapy Assistant working with high needs children can be challenging. Learning for Life Autism Centre’s (L4Life) University Work Placement Program helps university students develop a realistic understanding of these challenges and introduces them to ABA therapy’s effectiveness.

Through this program, we provide students with theoretical and practical training under the guidance of our psychologists and clinical consultants. Students observe therapy sessions, learn about data collection, set up program materials and participate in selective learning activities with the children we support.

Consistent with the high priority L4Life places on continued training and professional development, student placement positions are made available from July to December each year for students enrolled in an Australian university that requires a work placement as part of their course requirements.

ABA placements

Available to students enrolled in a health science or related degree, these placements are supervised by select Clinical Consultants. These placements relate to our intensive early intervention services.

Given the nature of our work and the competing priorities, we are only able to take on students for placement in the second half of the calendar year and have limited places available. If you are interested in undertaking a student placement with L4Life, and a work placement is a requirement of your course, please contact us via

Please note that we are unable to take on any students who do not have placement requirements as part of their university course and we do not have any clinical volunteering opportunities.

Psychology Placement

Learning for Life also takes on a limited number of students conducting their Masters of Psychology through partnership with select universities.
