Our Core Services

Speech-Language Therapy

Speech-Language Therapy services focus on enhancing communication and feeding skills to the best of every child's ability. Speech and language therapists work on a variety of skills to assist each child in becoming a successful and confident communicator. Therapists are trained and experienced with interventions that focus on sound development, memory and organization, language, articulation, social communication, processing, voice, fluency, functional communication, in addition to oral motor skills to enhance swallowing, chewing, and articulation.

Occupational Therapy

A child's occupation is learning, playing and completing activities of daily living. An Easterseals occupational therapist can evaluate the components of motor skills, play activities and sensory processing which are vital to success with these life skills. The therapist then compares the child's abilities with what is developmentally appropriate for his/her age group and provides intervention and adaptations necessary to develop age-appropriate skills.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy services focus on enhancing or restoring a child's mobility and functional competency. Easterseals' licensed physical therapists utilize therapeutic exercises, therapy regimens, assistive devices and special techniques to encourage independence at home, school and in the community. They help evaluate your child's muscle tone and movement patterns which support the development of motoring skills such as sitting, crawling, walking, running and jumping.

Mental Health & Family Support

Our team of compassionate mental health professionals has grown to offer extensive resources and provide a safe space for each family to receive support along their unique journey.

This diverse network of Licensed Social Workers (LSWs & LSCWs) and a Psychologist are available to answer questions, provide counseling support and strengthen relationships within our families.
