Our Donors


"Our 8 year-old son Ricardo has made tremendous gains at Giant Steps. He now speaks in full sentences, has caught up with his peers in gross motor skills and coordination, and made huge advances with his fine motor skills. Ricardo is now spending 3 afternoons a week in his local Grade 3 class with Giant Steps' support. We are thrilled with his new abilities to socialize there, and to see our son so much happier and confident. To all Giant Steps' donors, our heartfelt thanks for making a difference for our son and other children with autism!"

Our families, staff and Board of Directors are grateful to each and every one of our donors. Their generosity enables us to fulfill our mission of enabling children with Autism Spectrum Disorder through a comprehensive, coordinated program of academics, therapies, life skills and integration.
