Canopy is a day program for adults with autism. The program is based at Giant Steps and utilizes best practices developed in the day school to provide quality, individualized programming for adults over the age of 22.
Canopy launched in the spring of 2012 to help address the overwhelming need for adult autism services in Illinois. With the rate of autism growing at epidemic proportions, the demand for adult services far exceeds what is available. This leaves many that age out of services left without access to therapy sessions, leisure and recreational opportunities, life skills and vocational training, and caring staff that help promote independence. Canopy seeks to change that - to provide a program that will empower young adults with autism to maximize their potential.
