Support Children Like Jackson this Holiday Season

Six-year-old Jackson is like many young boys. He loves to play football, video games, solve math problems, and dance. He’s working on building his core strength to sit comfortably in his wheelchair so he can continue to do what he loves.
Jackson was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at 15-months-old. His parents were told that he wouldn’t stand, wouldn’t walk, and wouldn’t live past age two. The words “can’t” and “won’t” were part of every clinical conversation until they found Easterseals DuPage & Fox Valley.
Easterseals therapists focused on his strengths, and a life-saving medication was found to help Jackson. He recently stood and took his first steps.

Parenting is a stressful and challenging job. Parenting a child with a disability can be even harder. No one has to do it alone. We’re here to help.

Nutritional Therapy

Excellent nutrition is one of the most basic requirements for a child to grow and thrive. Research shows that as many as 90% of children with a developmental disorder have at least one nutrition risk indicator. Easterseals dieticians help children with improved oral and digestive tolerance, adjusting diet for improved volume and complexity of foods and fluids, and help with tube feedings.

Occupational Therapy

A child's occupation is learning, playing and completing activities of daily living. An Easterseals occupational therapist focuses on developing motor skills, sensory-processing abilities, coordination, peer interaction, play and self-care skills to participate in daily life activities. Because each child's needs are different, we create an individualized treatment plan based on parent concerns and the most current treatment approaches.

Every year, thousands of children with disabilities and their families walk through our doors with a dream; a dream that their son may walk, a dream that their daughter will be able to talk, a dream that their baby will live her life as independently as possible. When you give to Easterseals you are not just giving a dollar amount, you are helping a child's dream come true.
