100% Included. 100% Empowered.

Finding his voice

Odie's parents feel that he has been empowered a lot through his therapy, by being more in control of himself and his emotions and frustrations. A lot of that is because of his increased ability to communicate verbally, with signs, and with his iPad communication app.

Empowering Others

Meet Sam Miller For Sam, inclusion means being acknowledged and utilized, as well as respected for the contribution you make.

Making Progress

One word to describe her: Joyous Blessing and her family have been so willing to share every step of her physical therapy journey with us, and watching her progress will bring a smile to anyone's face.

Sharing her Joy

For her family, inclusion is seeing others view Larkin in the way that they do. When individuals and teams hold the capacity for greater understanding of diverse minds and abilities, everyone will be empowered to create significant change. When individuals are empowered to nurture their gifts and create significant change, nothing is impossible. Larkin is unstoppable, and will blaze on in her path to changing the world.

Oh Janie

“Janie has hit so many milestones since we have been an been at Easterseals, it’s so hard to just define one. I will say that we have been well taken care of at Easterseals and Charlie Jane is excelling with the program at the Easterseals Learning Academy. We are so blessed!”

Leading the way

Bryce was the first child through the Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinic at Easterseals in January of 2003. He loves to keep busy through helping around the house and in the community, and to be creative through art projects, singing, dancing, and acting in the Penguin Project, which produces musicals every year starring individuals with disabilities and their peer mentor
