"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 – Parent
