Parent Resources

LEEP Beyond was formed August 2012, to create supplemental therapeutic and educational programs for children with developmental differences in the Chicagoland area. This includes Art, Music Therapy, Yoga and Science Education.


We work to provide scholarships to families that need assistance in accessing the various therapies their child may need to help reach their full potential. We believe all children should have access to quality programs.

If you would like to learn more about our programs, or information about donating to LEEP Beyond please contact Lorell Marin.

LEEP is a partner of Rush University Medical Center, including hosting residents.  
Rush University's Austism Assessment, Research, Treatment, and Services (AARTS) Center at Rush offers unparalleled expertise in diagnosing and treating children, adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Read more about the AARTS center and there resources in the Autism Community.

The Profectum Academy is a partner of LEEP and offers a comprehensive collection of materials and trainings for the DIR Floortime model.  A large percentage of our LEEP Forward Team has done extensive training through Profectum. 


The Profectum Foundation has created a free Parent Tool Box. This program is a great additional resource that includes educational webcasts, workbooks, and play strategies to help every parent deepen and enrich their relationship with their child. 

LEEP is partnered with The PLAY PROJECT. Three of our professionals on staff are PLAY Project consultants in training.


The PLAY (Play and Language for Autistic Youngsters) Project is an evidence-based autism intervention developed by Richard Solomon, MD. The PLAY Project is devoted to helping parents develop a better connection with their child through play, and helping the child improve their language, development, behavior, and social skills. We watch parents develop a joyous relationship with their child because of the PLAY Project.
