WORDS FROM OUR MEMBERS AND THEIR PARENTS

"You’re teaching has helped me with my daily life routine which includes work life. I’ve learned how to be more confident and also stand up for myself and have a certain  behaviour at work..... also helped me have stronger friendships. 

I would strongly recommend NextSteps because you have made sure whoever you teach reaches their best and shines in their future.”   Hassan – Former Student


 “I like Amberley because he is amazing, and he taught me how to take the TTC by myself. I really enjoy the trips we go on. I love them.”  Rory - Current Student 


 “Through this program, Jonathan’s language, comprehension, anxiety and how he interacts and socializes in public has improved tremendously. I highly recommend other parents who are looking for social outlets for their children to contact NextSteps.” Janet - Parent 


 “Amberley has been in our lives for 8 years. He understands my son at times better then me. He can see through the lens of my son and gets the intricate workings of his mind. His Input is exceptional and I so appreciate his upbeat positive attitude & patience. Amberley creates the most detailed, thought out plans for our kids, which cater to their Interests, learning & needs. This past year, Amberley taught my son how to take the TTC independently. He taught him more then one way to get home in case a route was shut down. Taught him what to do if there was no ticket collector in the booth, what to do if someone sits to close to you etc. I feel very fortunate to have had Amberley’s guidance & expertise over these years. He is our angel.” Sarah C. – Parent
