To be eligible for LEAP, an assessment and evaluation must determine that a student has a disability that:

  • Adversely affects educational performance
  • Requires a specialized program or support which cannot be provided through adaptations in general education

Not all students with a disability meet the eligibility requirements mentioned above—there are disabilities that do not impact learning in ways that qualify a student for special education.  


Our LEAP program is available to children ages 3-4.

Residency Requirements

LEAP provides services for students who reside in Lawndale.
