Can you believe it? 2019 marks the 15th Anniversary of our Founders having established the Learning for Life Autism Centre. We have come along way since 2004. There is more awareness of autism, more funding options, and we are proud to have made a difference to the lives of many children and their families, but there is so much more to be done.

Join the Learning for Life Founders, Board and L4Life Village community of families, staff and supporters to celebrate this milestone. Enjoy a fabulous evening of wining and dining with great prizes, dancing and entertainment, and above all, your support/attendance will enable BRIGHTER FUTURES for children with Autism.

Organise a table, book a ticket and join the party. It will be a memorable night!

Who will you help with your support/attendance? Kids like Luca.

Luca and his dad on his first day of school

In February 2019, after 4 years of ABA therapy, Luca was able to start his very first school year. His 4,000 hours of therapy may not have been achievable without supporters like you who help make our Fair Access program possible. Hear what his dad, David, had to say about the milestone.
