Giant Steps is a charitable organization dedicated to serving the needs of children and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Founded in 1996 by a core group of families, we received initial funding in 1997 from the Illinois General Assembly.
Giant Steps is now able to provide services to over 140 children from more than 60 school districts throughout Chicagoland. Our unique
programming offers many components unavailable in a traditional school setting and enables our students to develop skills necessary to
reach a higher level of independence. Additionally, our community-based initiatives including first responder training, tutoring, family programs,
adapted music lessons, and recreational programs reach a significantly larger population of children and adults with autism.
