Giant Steps' kids are excited to be back...just ask Marika!

It’s been another tough couple of months for all of us, and especially so for families of children with autism.

Parents have been struggling with managing work at home or on the frontline and having a child with special needs at home full-time. Many families have reported significant disruptions in their children’s academic, behaviour and social skills.

But with schools now open again, Giant Steps is as busy as ever, and parents are breathing a sigh of relief.

Our students' days are once again full of academics, life skill learning and speech, behaviour and occupational therapies.

We're reminded that it's your kind and generous support that enables us to deliver these programs that make a real difference for kids with autism.
THANK YOU ALL...here's to better months ahead!
