Having graduated from Vanier College’s Special Care Counselling program, as well as McGill’s Inclusive Education program, Chris is a behaviour specialist with a focus on special needs. He believes that everyone is capable of achieving as long as they are given the tools they need.
Initially diagnosed with a speech disorder at the age of 3, and later diagnosed with a Specific Learning Disability at age 7, Chris struggled with school and social interactions. Growing up, he made it his mission to show and teach others about empathy and understanding, as he knows the struggles someone can experience both emotionally and socially.
