Our Son Johnny
"Our son Johnny is an energetic 11 year-old boy who has made tremendous progress at Giant Steps.
Johnny is now motivated and engaged in communication. Using his PECS binder, iPad, and visuals, he is spontaneously requesting items and activities in various settings. The Squeeze Machine, Double Roller, trampoline and other therapeutic strategies address Johnny’s sensory and motor challenges and organize his mind and body. He loves the climbing wall, and with the focus and motivation he gains there and his “toolkit” of a basket system, visual schedule, first-then and token boards, Johnny is much more prepared for learning. He is working hard on his sight word vocabulary, his printing skills and numbers to 100, and loves the skating trips, swimming lessons and walks in the community with staff and students.
Johnny would not be where he is today without Giant Steps. The knowledgeable staff, innovative programming and specialized equipment have enabled our son to make wonderful gains!"
