for ages 10-14
LEAP is a multifaceted program that builds skills for independence and inclusion in the community as appropriate for each client (approximately ages 10-14). Each client in the LEAP program has a research-based treatment plan that is personally tailored to their needs and the needs of the family in order to address the core deficits of autism. LEAP offers a one to one therapist-to-client ratio in addition to small groups in order to generalize skills. The program is closely supervised by an on-site Board Certified Behavior Analyst that supervises no more than 7 cases. Parents play an integral role in developing goals for their child and parents receive monthly trainings and they are encouraged to include siblings and other caregivers.
