Imagine the power of 4 million Californians with disabilities voting

 

Our mission is to engage and inform voters with disabilities and empower members of our community to facilitate access to voting for ourselves and our friends and neighbors with disabilities. 

 

Disability Vote California is a non-partisan campaign to eliminate barriers to voting, promote accessibility of voting technology and polling places; educate voters about issues and candidates; promote turnout of voters with disabilities across the state; engage candidates and the media on disability issues, and protect eligible voters’ right to participate in elections.

Are You #VoteReady? You can vote if you are:

  • Registered to vote 
  • A US Citizen
  • 18 years or older by Election Day
  • A resident (homeless citizens can vote)
  • Not currently in state or federal prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony
  • Not prohibited from voting by a court (some people under conservatorship may not be eligible to vote. Scroll to "Resources" to learn more)

Thanks to a generous donation made by Reachability Foundation, our daily shine class will remain free and open until the end of July. If you’d like to participate in our other Summer Session classes you can Sign UP now!

Social Skills and peer-to-peer connection

Our social skills coaches work with students on concepts such as “expected and unexpected” behavior in a group, whole body listening, thinking with our eyes, building social memories, and perspective taking. We use teachable moments during the course of a session to spotlight these and other fundamental social cognitive concepts.

Group activities are age appropriate, fun and interactive. Students are carefully and thoughtfully matched with peers who will be working at a similar social level.

During the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken all our classes online and are offering virtual social skills sessions.  Please reach out if you are interested in connecting with peers during this time and we will work to add you into our virtual sessions.  You do not have to be part of our clinic based program in order to be a part of our virtual community.  For more information, please contact us at info@leapsnboundz.com

The Leaps n Boundz Tailored Services program provides training and support, guiding individuals in the development of the skills necessary to achieve life goals.  Program participants can explore employment options and volunteer placement, continue learning with post-secondary education support and connect with the community by leading an integrated and inclusive life.

We are still supporting our clients through the COVID-19 pandemic both virtually and in-person.  For more information about how to get started and to be placed on our wait list, please contact
