For School

LEAPS works with school districts across Washington State to provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, behavior support services and educational consultation services for children with autism and other developmental disorders. We understand that the school staff and our clinical staff must work closely together to help children reach their full potential.

LEAPS offers the highest quality of intensive, research-based behavioral treatment and provides school districts the staff training, consulting and programming necessary for high-quality, consistent teaching and behavioral intervention.

Positive Behavior Support Plans are developed and monitored under the direction of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) and implemented by a team that includes certified special education teachers, para-educators and other professionals dedicated to students’ academic and behavioral gains.

LEAPS behavior technicians are trained in ABA therapy and many are working toward their BCBA or BCaBA credentials. Most employees hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology, special education or a related field, and many hold a master’s degree and/or are Safety Care trained.
