Easter Seals Tennessee Expertise

Nationwide, more than 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 out 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.
