News, Notes & Events
April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day and kicks off World Autism Month…
a global effort to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism.
In anticipation, we wanted to share this adorable photo of 7 year-old Mila, one of our students here at Giant Steps.
Over the last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and heightened inequalities for so many, including those faced by people with autism.
With the loss of in-person interaction and learning this past year, families are concerned more than ever about their kids’ social, academic and behaviour skills and their mental health.
We’re grateful that today Mila and our other kids are at Giant Steps, happily engaging and learning with our teachers and therapists!
