About Lauren’s Institute for Education (L.I.F.E.)

Accredited Under BHCOE's 2020 Standards

Lauren’s Institute for Education (L.I.F.E.) has undergone rigorous evaluation in accordance with the BHCOE Standards of Excellence in ABA Therapy. It has been accredited as a Behavioral Health Center of Excellence for its commitment to providing the highest quality care for autistic individuals.

We offer a variety of therapies that nurture each individual child’s overall growth to improve their quality of life and the lives of their family members. Lauren’s Institute for Education (L.I.F.E.) is a special place for developmentally disabled children.


Lauren is the daughter of Carrie Reed, Co-Founder and President of L.I.F.E. She was diagnosed with a rare disorder called Sanfilippo Syndrome in July 2004. Although Lauren is only a child, she has been through several tests, surgeries and even a cord blood stem cell transplant donated from her brother’s umbilical cord blood, which had been preserved at birth. Lauren remains an active and entertaining child that loves to sing, play with her dollies and do everything her mom does! Learn more about her …


Our philosophy of care addresses the whole child, not just traditional areas of need. Through our eclectic approach we believe that the child’s emotional well being, both social/emotional awareness and self expression, is as equally important to a child’s growth as is cognitive and physical functioning.

The staff recognizes and celebrates the unique characteristics of each child. Using evidence based practices, L.I.F.E. strives to provide highly effective techniques which generalize outside of the therapeutic environment and ultimately contribute to an individual child’s life quality.


Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Lauren’s Institute for Education (L.I.F.E.) must make a reasonable accommodation to allow a person with a disability to take part in a program, service, or activity. For example, this means that if necessary, L.I.F.E. must provide sign language interpreters for people who are deaf, a wheelchair accessible location, or enlarged print materials. It also means that L.I.F.E. will take any other reasonable action that allows you to take part in and understand a program or activity, including making reasonable changes to an activity. If you believe that you will not be able to understand or take part in a program or activity because of your disability, please let us know of your disability needs in advance if at all possible. Please contact: Margaret Travillion at (480) 621-8361.
