Leaps was initially developed to help people, adults and children, who were moving from institutions into the community and they needed to increase their social intelligence and their emotional intelligence. Many of these individuals were very bright intellectually but they lacked the adaptive or emotive skills to fit into society. They were taught systematically how to grow their social capacity while simultaneously increase their emotional intelligence so that they could integrate into a more independent societal setting. Great success was achieved!
Fast forward to today, after decades of research, adaptation, and application Leaps has taken the clinical process of deficit assessment and addressment within the scope of social capacity and emotional intelligence and used it to create individual scope plans to increase learning capacity thereby increasing the student’s ability to learn. In other words, Leaps has taken the clinical and made it classroom ready for the educators. Assess your student, lessons are recommended to address the assessed deficits, progress is measured, targets are given, success is achieved.
The wonderful thing about increasing a student’s social and emotional learning capacity is that when the student learns to sit in class and pay attention and get along with other students and the teacher and feel better about himself and understand the stresses and expectations of being a student – learning can occur – all learning. Leaps is Social and Emotional Learning.
