Parents should begin teaching spatial concepts to children at a very early age. At age two, children are already absorbing, learning, and rapidly developing their vocabularies. They are beginning to understand the concepts of space in their environment; they are moving, touching, talking, and beginning to ask questions. This is the perfect time to immerse them in language that fosters their understanding of spatial relationships between their bodies and the objects in their environment.

Laura with First Leap has been working with my son for over four years now, since he was 22 months old. I feel so fortunate that our family found such an amazing, capable, compassionate therapist! My son has made tremendous strides in the past 4 years and in large part due to her expertise and commitment to our entire family. We couldn't ask for more! I highly recommend First Leap to any family looking for an ABA therapist.

Taught and helped integrated son and family behavior so that life is more productive and "fun." My son looks forward to working with staff. First Leap is top notch in working with children that need behavioral therapy.

The teachers and staff there are amicable, collaborative, and helpful! They truly involve their students in activities that broaden their horizons in a fun and engaging way. We have enjoyed collaborating with them in the past and hope to continue to do so in the future.
