"Your life and mine shall be valued not by what we take... but by what we give." Those words, spoken by Easter Seals' founder Edgar Allen over 90 years ago, began a movement. Today, we're thankful to you for being a part of that movement. With over 50 million Americans living with disabilities, our work is far from complete. We encourage you to help us call attention to the experience of people with disabilities, and to raise awareness of and advocate for the services they need to live, learn, work and play in their communities.
In the spotlight
Tyler first came to Easterseals at age 10 months when he was screened at his daycare and they noticed he fisted his left hand when he crawled. He was referred to Easterseals and diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Tyler began receiving physical and occupational therapy at Easterseals and is doing great. He has recently learned how to shoot a shotgun with his dad and tie his shoes in a double knot. He enjoys playing with tractors and eating chicken nuggets.
