Applicants are placed on the Eligibility List based on the following:
- a medical, psychological or multi-disciplinary diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder
- may have an associated developmental delay or intellectual disability
An offer of placement will be made as vacancies arise and are considered on the following criteria:
- Educational fit for the child or young adult. This includes if the placement available is appropriate for the child and if the educational program offered at the school will best support the young person’s learning.
- Community fit for the family. Giant Steps is a unique community, which requires families to be actively involved in not only the program their child is part of, but the wider school community and the considerable fund raising efforts required to keep the programs running.
