Leap Learning Systems delivers cutting-edge language and literacy development programs to educators, students and their families across Chicago and beyond, particularly those in underserved communities.
We believe that words are tools. If young people can speak, write and communicate effectively, they are poised for success in school, at work and in life.
Research reveals that children from low-income backgrounds hear 40 million fewer words and spend nearly 1,000 fewer hours being read to before kindergarten than children from middle- and upper-class households. Students who lack sufficient language and communication skills are at a distinct disadvantage that will greatly impact their academic and life experience.
Leap is committed to shrinking this learning gap by improving the language and literacy skills of students across Chicago and nationwide. Our research-based programs for Early Childhood, School Age and High School and Beyond are proven to work and have the power to accelerate academic performance and transform lives.
