CJAD Hero of the Month Nicholas Katalifos
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”― Mahatma Gandhi
Nicholas Katalifos has his hands in many pots, and efficiently manages all of them. Father to a son with autism, Nicholas is always available to help, sitting on various committees including the I Can Dream Theatre Group. He is fully committed to supporting and improving the lives of people with autism in the city of Montreal.
In addition to his duties as principal of Roslyn School in Westmount, he’s also the Chairman of Giant Steps School and Resource Center - the only educational and therapeutic institution in Quebec that caters exclusively to teaching children with autism.
The school provides access for children and families affected by autism, to a team of specialized professionals. Among their services are speech therapy, occupational therapy and social skills, as well as essential skills of daily living and behaviour management.
Nicholas is consultant to many, be it to generate ideas, connect people or find funding. He is a go-to multi-tasker who always has time to advise and who gets the job done. The autism community in Montreal is fortunate to have him as a leader.
