La Fondation Véro & Louis

Our mission is to build and operate one or more homes that can accommodate and provide support, on a permanent basis, to persons aged 21 and over with autism spectrum disorder. The Foundation’s decision to only help people aged 21 and over was motivated by the realization that services offered to them are almost non-existent. Many of the services available to children with pervasive developmental disorders seem to diminish or disappear altogether when these children reach adulthood. In this way, the Foundation aims to fill a significant gap in our society.

Giant Steps Foundation

The Giant Steps Foundation was founded in order to offer financial support to the Giant Steps School.

The school boasts a large team of professionals specialized in autism and the widest variety of therapeutic services under one roof: speech therapy, occupational therapy, music therapy, play and social skills, computers and adapted technology, essential life skills and behaviour management.

Due to the individualized academic and inclusion programs offered, the school requires significant financial resources. In order to ensure the continuity and quality of services, the Giant Steps School relies heavily on the Foundation to raise over $800,000 per year for the school.
