At Giant Steps, we are continually fine tuning our delivery of best practices with respect for the unique communication, sensory and behavioural strengths and challenges experienced by each child.
We deliver 3 core therapy programs – speech, behaviour and occupational therapies, and addressing each child’s needs in all areas of growth and development, including play, social and daily living skills.
Each child’s therapy goals are implemented and evaluated based on daily data collection and analysis, and each child’s program plan undergoes frequent clinical reviews. Children receive 1 hour/week of direct therapy in each discipline. Our therapists are registered with their professional organizations and have extensive experience working in the field of autism.
Giant Steps’ therapy assistants are dedicated and experienced team members who are passionate about working with children with autism. Integral to our kids’ success, they work with our kids in a 2:1 child to staff ratio, collecting data and implementing and evaluating strategies to meet each child’s therapy, and play, social and life skills goals.
Families are important partners in the development of their children’s therapy plans, the prioritization of goals and evaluation of progress. Our team also works closely with families and with teachers and other professionals as needed to provide consistent support and reinforcement of therapeutic strategies in all settings.
