My name is Rachel Shuman. I live in Silver Spring and I'm the single mom of two bright, busy small sons, Auggie and Henry. Let me tell you how Easterseals helped us.
When Auggie was three and Henry was a baby, I learned that Auggie is on the autism spectrum. He was clearly not happy in his current daycare and toilet training had become an issue. I wasn't feeling good about leaving Henry there either. I needed a place where they both could thrive and a friend recommended Easterseals.
James began receiving child care at Easterseals when he was about 4 months old. His parents had noticed that his leg turned in slightly since birth; shortly before starting at Easterseals, it was discovered that James had a condition known as bilateral congenital pseudoarthrosis of the tibia.
For most families, the birth of a child is a joyous occasion. For the Inzeo family, Mikey’s birth was a day of emotional struggle, and fear of the unknown. Mike (Mikey's father) was trying to do it all for his family, and was quickly burning out. He needed help, and Easterseals was there to help him.
