GIANT STEP SERVICES
A Comprehensive Post Secondary, Community-Based Program for
Young Adults with Special Needs.
This program is designed to maximize each young adult’s independence by utilizing a supportive, individualized approach as they transition to the community, work, and post-secondary options.
TWO STEPS TO INDEPENDENCE
Step 1 is a two-year comprehensive vocational, independent living, social and educational program that maximizes each young adult’s potential for living away from home. Students can be engaged in developing their career goals and/or furthering their education.
Step 2 is designed for students who have mastered most of the skills in Step 1 necessary to lead independent lives and with limited supports can successfully integrate into a mainstream community.
A SNAPSHOT OF OUR PROGRAM
We work on every student's needs.
Our highly individualized vocational program gives each of our members work experience and the support they need to develop their skills.
Giant Step is an ideal alternative for academically able young adults who have challenges that compromise their ability to live on a college campus.
Structured and unstructured interactions, along with staff support, enable our members to develop and practice social skills throughout the week.
The STEP staff have taught, nurtured, challenged and encouraged our daughter within a safe environment of trust, love and acceptance.
