Easter Seals Expertise

Nationwide, as many as 54 million Americans have a disability. Maybe your neighbor has an injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident, or your coworker has a child with cerebral palsy. Your grandmother may be recovering from stroke -- or maybe you are one of every five Americans with a disability. Look around you, and you'll find people of all abilities who are vital participants in their communities despite the barriers they may encounter. The barriers, physical or otherwise, people with disabilities face begin with people's attitudes -- attitudes often rooted in misinformation and misunderstanding. Easter Seals provides answers to help everyone create solutions that change lives... maybe even their own.

In the spotlight

ASQ Story

Children develop skills, or "milestones," at their own pace. How is your child or grandchild doing? You only need 10-20 minutes to check with the Ages & Stages Questionnaires® online screening. Your results will help you see if your child's developmental progress is on time and alert you to any concerns that you can talk over with your health care provider.
