The Leveraging Education for Advancement Program (LEAP) is an Inclusive Postsecondary Education (IPSE) Program. LEAP at Albany Technical College provides students with intellectual disabilities (ages 18 and older) an inclusive post-secondary college education. LEAP focuses on developing academic, personal, and self-advocacy skills that lead to employment. Each participant works closely with an academic transition teacher and a trained mentor to assist students in meeting their academic and social needs. Student programming is based on the strengths and needs of the individual student identified through the development of a Person-Centered Plan. Along with taking classes for credit, students have the opportunity to participate in career development workshops, social community integration, job shadowing, and internships.
