The Next Chapter Book Club of Easter Seals Central Texas was excited to host a special inaugural luncheon with New York Times bestselling author, Ron Suskind on Thursday, August 21, 2014 at the Four Seasons Hotel. Mr. Suskind discussed his latest book, “Life Animated, a Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism" a truly inspirational story of how the Suskind family reconnected with their autistic son, Owen. At age 3, Owen regressed into a non-communicative world, but through his affinity and deep connection to Disney movies, has since graduated from high school, college and is living in a semi independent living facility.
At Easter Seals Central Texas (ESCT), we encounter families like the Suskinds everyday. They are searching for help, resources and support to meet the needs of children and adults with disabilities. ESCT provides patient centered services such as outpatient physical, occupational, audiological and speech therapy, as well as paid job training, an independent living program, and the Next Chapter Book Club for people in 21 counties in Central Texas.
At weekly meetings, the Next Chapter Book Club gathers adolescents and adults with intellectual disabilities to promote literacy and social interaction experiences that encourage friendship and lifelong learning within a community-based setting.
Proceeds benefited Easter Seals Central Texas’ clients and programs.
