What's New At

Easterseals Central Illinois

Celebrate with us!

At Easterseals, we love to celebrate milestone moments. Our clients, families, and therapists work together to set goals and achieve them. Some goals are loud- like saying 'mom' or learning to advocate for yourself. Some are quiet, like identifying your emotions and using coping tools. Some show speed, like riding a bike. Some show strength, like sitting up independently. Whatever the milestone moment, we are here to celebrate it. Because every child is worth celebrating

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.
