Success Stories

Taking Giant Steps: Success Stories from Our Parents


The following testimonials represent what families have to say about their child’s growth and progress at Giant Steps.


“… Thank you for giving us back our little boy! Despite the best efforts of our school district, our son was becoming a terror at school, and we feared he would never learn to learn. After a few short months at Giant Steps, he has literally been reborn. We now have hope for his future.”

– Bill & Melanie Metcalf


“… Our family has been with Giant Steps for over a decade and has a deep sense of gratitude for Giant Steps. The school has provided a safe, nurturing, and challenging environment for our son, Patrick. Giant Steps has given Patrick opportunities to become the best that he can be.”

– Ann McCartin


“… Then, one day, Cesar noticed his laces were untied. Out of habit, I was going to tie them for him. I stood in disbelief as my baby bent down to tie his own shoes. I screamed for my husband and we cried happy tears. I actually untied his shoes to watch him do it again! I felt my child had reached a milestone in his life. I hugged and kissed him. For most mothers, teaching your child to tie his shoes might not be a big deal, but for the mother of an autistic child, it is definitely a giant step. Thanks to the wonderful teachers and staff for doing all that you do for our son and so many like him.”

– Mrs. Mercado
