L4Life on Channel 7

Tuesday, December 12 2017

L4Life was in the spotlight when Channel 7’s Sunrise came to visit our new centre after reading about us in the Progress Leader. These PR moments came about through our connection with Trybooking (our platform choice for ticketing/events) who are part of our L4Life Village and have supported us for many years. Their marketing team suggested the story to a Leader journalist. It was a special opportunity for us to share our mission and hard work with the larger community.

Our Inaugural L4Life AbiliTEA Campaign for Autism Awareness Month!

Tuesday, March 14 2017

We did it! April is over, and with it, our inaugural Autism AbiliTEA campaign to mark Autism Awareness month.

We are so grateful to all who supported this new initiative. We wanted to focus on skills that children learn in our intensive early intervention (ABA) programs at L4Life that lead to other abilities later in life. Learning how to follow instructions, imitate, communicate, be more independent, interact and play with others and with imagination give kids necessary tools for school, playdates, sports/hobbies, and so much more, throughout their whole lives. Read more about the campaign. You can also watch our very special AbiliTEA video.
