Danny is a beautiful three and a half-year-old boy who attends our inclusive Child Development Center in Washington, DC.
When Danny was a few months old, he was diagnosed with Lissencephaly, a rare brain disorder which limits his development and causes complex medical challenges like seizures and respiratory problems. His parents felt like their life was turned upside down. They had many questions about how they could help him have a full life and do things like go to school and have friends. Then they found Easterseals.
Since enrolling at Easterseals in May 2016, Danny has been thriving with his teachers, therapists and friends, making incredible progress especially with his gross motor skills and cognitive and social development. For Danny’s parents, Easterseals is a partner in the education and caregiving of their son, providing him with tremendous love, attention and concern for his well-being.
