For thirty years STEPS has provided skill development to children, youth and adults with special needs. STEPS offers a variety of recreational, life skills and leadership programs. These programs are designed to enable clients to participate successfully in activities in their community, their school and their home.
STEPS Programs focus on the development of physical skills, critical thinking, independence, decision-making, communication and self-confidence. Programs are customized to the ability levels and unique needs of participants and instruction is broken down into a series of small achievable steps.
STEPS receives referrals from teachers, physiotherapists and doctors as well as from families who have benefited from our programs.

"The STEPS programs have helped the kids with balance, coordination, body
awareness and motor planning. This has meant that they have overcome fears,
learned new skills and become far more confident. The programs have created
a foundation for what we hope will be a physically active and "connected"
