Caring for children of all ages is a tough job, however many children, youth, and adults with disabilities face special challenges.  They may experience fears about the future, poor self-esteem, and difficulty coping with their disability.  Many parents of children with disabilities also experience very unique challenges related to managing their child’s development and behavior.  Counselors at Easterseals can help individuals and families, with and without disabilities, focus on their abilities, learn positive coping methods, improve challenging parenting tasks, and enhance social and behavioral skills in a comfortable and fun environment.

Our Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors and Licensed Clinical Social Workers have experience providing services for individuals between the ages of 0 and 21 years of age.

For an appointment for your child (birth to 21 years), please contact our Peoria Center at 309.686.1177.

The mission of the counseling team at Easterseals is to provide developmentally appropriate, individualized and evidence-based services that will support children and young adults, age’s birth through 21, and their families.  Our counseling team is able to provide therapy services for individuals with social/emotional delays, diagnosed disabilities, medically complex issues, or those who may have a mental or behavioral health concern. Counselors at Easterseals can help individuals and families build on their abilities and strengths, learn positive coping methods, assist with challenging parenting tasks and enhance social and behavioral skills in a comfortable and fun environment.
