What's New

Save TAP
The FY 2016 budget presented to the Illinois General Assembly includes NO FUNDING for TAP. Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago is 1 of the 17 partners in the statewide autism support network serving children, families & professionals. Advocate & share your story at www.save-tap.org
Early Intervention
The proposed FY 2016 budget would cut $23 million from EI statewide. The Administration is proposing to increase the level of a developmental delay from 30% to 50%, which would deny access to EI for thousands of children services in Illinois.
Dental Program
The proposed FY 2016 budget presented to the Illinois General Assembly would eliminate the Dental Program at Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago. Since 1965, the Dental Program has provided a comprehensive array of dental care services for people with developmental disabilities.
We believe we can restore the CCAP budget but we need your help. We urge the Governor and the General Assembly to work together to find a long-term solution for working families in Illinois to fully fund CCAP for 160,000 children whose parents work or attend school.
Camp FRIENDship
Camp FRIENDship focuses on helping children with developmental disabilities acquire social skills within a positive, fun, and safe learning environment. Camp FRIENDship is the week of June 22-26, 2015. Scholarships available, inquire for details.
