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.
The Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission’s (ACNC) Charity Tick is here, and you’ll be seeing it more as we add it to our communications. The ACNC has created this tick to help the public instantly identify a registered charity, and encourage them to visit the ACNC’s Charity Register listing. It reflects the ACNC’s commitment to being a contemporary, friendly and engaging organisation, with the the bold-coloured ribbons intended to convey support, pride, spirit and unity.Read More
Thanks to all those who came and celebrated our wonderful L4Life community at our High Society Ball on Friday, 25 November 2016. It was a very special night and many noted a lot of love in the room. The stage was set for our Ball theme with an exquisite floral display and nostalgic scene in the foyer reminiscent of the 1950’s silver screen with the movie icons themselves, Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Celeste Holm there to greet the guests!Read More
Every year is busy, and this one was no exception. We have arrived at a particularly exciting phase where we are established enough to expand our reach beyond early intervention services to working with school-aged children with autism at all grade levels and into rural Victoria.
