Our Son Alex

Alex"Alex was diagnosed with autism at the age 4. He struggled in the regular school system, and upon the recommendation of one of his Special Education teachers, we applied to Giant Steps. When he was accepted into the program we felt like we had won the lottery.

The therapies that Alex has received from Giant Steps in the last three years have transformed our son. Back then, he was not able to hold a pencil -- now he can write his name. He was never interested in any kind of interactive physical activity -- now he engages with his siblings and enjoys playing trampoline basketball. He is much more verbal, now using full sentences and his iPad to communicate.

We are so grateful to have been blessed with the opportunity for Alex to attend Giant Steps, and grateful to all his teachers, therapists and program assistants there for the wonderful progress our son is making."
