University Work Placement Program
A career as a Behavioural Therapy Assistant working with high needs children can be challenging. L4Life’s 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 Psychologist and Clinical Consultant monitoring. Students observe therapy sessions, learn about data collection, set up program materials and participate in selective learning activities with the children.
To be eligible, students must already be enrolled in a course that requires them to complete a work placement. This is to ensure that students have the necessary liability coverage.
