Every Dollar Makes a Difference

As we consider our future, we know there is nothing more important than creating a world where all children belong at home, school and in their community. Together, with your support, we will do more, share more, and celebrate every child’s success through our Programs for Life:

LEARNING through PLAY: Making sense of their world

Children practice skills, expand their imagination, and create a valued role for themselves with their peers. Play forms a foundation for all learning that leads to feelings of confidence and well-being.

EQUIPMENT for INDEPENDENCE: Experiencing LIFE

Specialized equipment, assistive devices and technology ensure every child’s dignity and independence as they move through activities and spaces where they learn, laugh and live. Children are provided with adapted chairs, visual schedules and sensory items for everyday participation.

COMMUNICATIONS for SHARING: Every Child has a VOICE

Supportive technology gives every child a voice, a way to express their feelings, and a way to engage with peers, their family and their community. Children and families are provided with communication devices, iPads, and other technology critical for a child’s self-expression.

COMMUNITY LEARNING: Learning Together

Parents, teams and community partners increase their knowledge and confidence to apply current research and best practices. In doing so, we support every child’s participation and learning, every family’s strengths, and ensure every school embraces all children.

Parent Quotes

Through GRIT, I have developed a vision of what is possible for our son and have gained the confidence and skill to introduce him to the world.”
— Cindy Smith, Alumni Parent

GRIT did not only help our child to learn but they are teaching us how to teach him, how to advocate for him, and to believe in ourselves and our vision for his future.”
— Shyla Masse, Alumni Parent

The GRIT TEAM changed not only my son’s life, but our family’s life as a whole. Through home programming, his authentic self and potential emerged. I will forever be a strong advocate and keep working to educate the educators, our family and friends, the community and the world to ensure that my children are happy, healthy and lead successful, productive lives.
— Monica Gauron, Alumni Parent
