Easter Seals Academy and LEAP Programs

Easterseals Academy

Easterseals Academy located in Naples provides specialized programming for students, ages 11 to 22, with developmental disabilities, autism, and related conditions. With a strong focus on employability skills training and functional academics, students are immersed in our community for optimal learning and development.

Most of our students utilize either the McKay Scholarship or Step-Up Funding to supplement tuition to attend our extraordinary Academy.  Financial assistance may also be available dependent upon need.  LEAP eliminates the abrupt end of services when students “age out” of school at the age of 22. This new program will make the transition from school to adult a much better experience for young adults and their families. We are an approved provider through the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) and also offer private pay options.

Easterseals Academy and LEAP have two vans and a bus, providing unprecedented access to our community. We are located in a spacious facility and welcome you to visit us at 8793 Tamiami Trail East, Ste. 111 in Naples.
