Summer Program

Ages: 5 - 7 years & 8 - 11 years 

Leap Ahead, Inc. offers morning program, afternoon program, or full-day program options for children with autism & other related disorders. We are accepting children ages 5 to 11 years. If you are interested in your child participating in our Summer Program, please fill out the Program Request Form and the Summer Program Intake Form found on this page. Your request will be reviewed; you will receive a notification if your child has been accepted within 7-10 days. New families require an appointment to ensure you child meets the criteria for our Summer Program.  Registration of a minimum of 4 weeks is required (indicate any 4 weeks on form). Peer role models will be present to aid in facilitating language and social skills on Group Therapy days when available.


Group Structure:

  • Group Therapy with no more than 4 children per group, with a ratio of Therapist to Children to be determined according to developmental and cognitive levels of each group. Each child will have individual goals that coincide with their developmental and cognitive needs. We are accepting 8 children per day for ages 5-7 years (two groups), and 4 children per day for ages 8-11 years (one group).  

  • Academic Days are structured with no more than 5 children per group, with a ratio of Therapist to Children to be determined according to developmental and cognitive levels of each group.  We are accepting 10 children per day for ages 5-7 years (two groups), and 5 children per day for ages 8-11 years (one group).
