Language Early Access Program (LEAP)
The key focus of LEAP is language. During all LEAP activities, children are exposed to both Auslan and English. Children learn these languages in a safe environment where language development is encouraged. The program also aims to promote children’s language acquisition by building on their signed and spoken communication skills.
