The first of its kind on a public four-year university campus, Mason’s Learning into Future Environments (LIFE) program is a creative postsecondary program for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who desire a university experience in a supportive academic environment.

Students enrolled in the LIFE program take classes to improve their literacy, employment skills, and independent living skills. At the same time, the program provides apprenticeships for Mason students majoring in human services fields such as assistive technology, education, and psychology. In fall 2010, the Mason LIFE program sponsored and hosted an annual national conference on post-secondary education for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

  1. To who it may concern:
    I am the father and legal guardian of a 24 year old male who has autism and related developmental disabilities. My son David is currently employed at Didlake, pulling trash and other such activities. I believe he has reached a point in his emotional and behavioral maturity that remedial academic classes could benefit him greatly.

    I would like to arrange for an initial conversation with someone who can share with me more information about this program.

    thanking you in advance and looking forward to hearing from you,

    Bruce Finland
