Our Story

The Crystal Ladder Learning Centre (CLLC) was founded in 2014 by Executive Director Mariella Mongiovi, a local mother of twin daughters diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Along with Founding Director Wendy Savo, a special collaboration and partnership soon developed where their unique, yet complimentary perspectives in providing quality treatment services became the catalyst in the creation of the CLLC. Their steadfast commitment in creating holistic and innovative learning environments has led them to assemble a knowledgeable and experienced multi-disciplinary treatment team led by Clinical Director Subhashin Kanhai, ensuring that their original vision and mission is always being met.
