LEAP - Including Kids

for ages 8-14


LEAP is a multifaceted education program where a small group of children (ages 8-14) on the autism spectrum are taught alongside a small number of children, not on the spectrum. The organization aims to prepare your child for inclusion and give them the skills to benefit from mainstream education. Each child in the LEAP program has a curriculum that is personally tailored to their needs, concentrating on standard academic subjects as well as any other personalized objectives. LEAP offers a one on one therapist-to-client ratio as well as quarterly, detailed reports to each client and detailed daily communication logs.

Being a part of the LEAP program is not just for your child, we provide services for the whole family. Our organization emphasizes parent and sibling training and offers an Including Kids Parent Group Membership, so that you can take an active role in your child’s development. Our therapists can also accompany you to help facilitate haircuts, medical treatments, etc.


Benefits of Leap

Being part of the LEAP program will not only benefit your family and prepare your child for inclusion, but it also affords your child unique group opportunities such as:

  • Summer Inclusion Programming (Enrollment in Discovery College at Lonestar College Kingwood)
  • Enrollment in local sports camps
  • Enrollment in local Vacation Bible Schools to improve social interaction with typically developing peers
  • Technology-intensive programming (iPad usage in classroom)
  • ALLY (Advancement of Learning and Leadership in Young Adults) Program: a peer “buddy” system increase social awareness through observational learning by interacting with typically developing peers in a typical classroom setting.

LEAP provides van transportation to and from all of these inclusion opportunities and field trips and has a registered nurse on site. Our organization also accepts insurance if applicable.
