LEAP Preschool for Kids with ASD Starts February 2020

Posted by on Friday, December 13, 2019 ·  


graphic burst promoting 2 sponsored spaces

About LEAP Preschool

LEAP preschool is founded on the principles of the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) and Applied Behavioural Analysis principles (ABA). In the Early Start Denver Model, children with autism or suspected autism, follow a developmental curriculum. This means they learn specific skills at specific stages of development. Specially designed methods are used to teach the curriculum.

Our program aims to help children aged 2.5-5 with autism or suspected autism “leap” into successful first years of school by supporting them to develop pivotal areas such as communication, social skills, imitation and play skills.

LEAP preschool is run by trained Autism Therapists and overseen by Katie Michalek and Holly Adair-Simpson who are Board Certified Behaviour Analysts trained at the advanced level of the Early Start Denver Model and ABA.
