Easterseals Arkansas provides exceptional services, education, outreach, and advocacy so that people with disabilities can live, learn, work and play in our communities. Easterseals Arkansas has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, and their families, live better lives for more than 75 years. From child development centers to physical rehabilitation and job training for people with disabilities, Easterseals offers a variety of services to help people with disabilities address life's challenges and achieve personal goals.
Easterseals Arkansas is going strong in Phase 2 of reopening our programs. We are continuing to remain vigilant to keep COVID-19 contained – at work, at home and when we are in public. Those we serve and their families are counting on us to keep them safe.
We are now enrolling in both of our developmental preschools, Academy at Riverdale as well as our college program, ACCE.
We are excited to announce our Virtual Walk With Me, happening now through September 19th! The summer activity we've all known to come and love will look a bit different this year with the health and safety of those we serve as our top priority, but this year's Walk With Me will be just as meaningful and fun.
