By reducing the financial burden many applicants face and also provide a community of support, The LEAP Institute looks to increase equitable access for marginalized groups entering into the field of behavior analysis.

Our mission is to actively address the increasing disparity of behavioral services for our BIPOC, non-BIPOC, LGBTQ, and Neurodiverse populations facing vulnerability and isolation by proactively supporting diverse practitioner growth within the field of behavior analysis.

O Test Fees and more
Cultivate a community of mentorship that is:
O Supportive of diverse practitioners and supervisees
O Inclusive of diverse works and research
O Beneficial to both supervisors and supervisees
