Easterseals provides hands-on, comprehensive, vital programs and support to help people reach their full potential—regardless of challenges, needs or disabilities.
Our Early Intervention services are designed to promote child development and to minimize the impact of disability while coaching parents and caregivers on how to build on their child’s strengths. We offer eligible children ages birth to three a variety of supports, including special instruction, behavioral services, occupational therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy and vision services. We provide EI services to toddlers with a diagnosis of ASD as well as those who may be on the spectrum, but do not have a diagnosis.
We offer outpatient physical and occupational therapy for children and young adults at our center in Reading. Children receive help with coordination, handwriting, social skills, and sensory integration. Others work on walking, flexibility, balance and receive help with wheelchairs and walkers. Visit our Outpatient Therapy webpage to learn more about our services and approach.
Our specialty medical clinics offer the quality services of medical professionals who work with children who have complex medical needs. Specialists from Berks County and Philadelphia come to our center in Reading to provide free care to children who need these services. Clinics include orthopedics, neurology, and feeding. In addition, two different orthotic specialists make custom orthotic braces for children of all ages. Easterseals offers Spanish translation and helps families manage their child’s care.
We offer therapeutic groups for children to help them build new skills in a small group setting. The groups are led by our qualified physical and occupational therapists and speech pathologists who are experienced in working with young children with unique needs and abilities. Our schedule of programs varies as we continue to develop new offerings.
We offer individual and small group programming designed to empower young adults and adults with disabilities to live independent and rewarding lives in their community. We provide support so that all can successfully explore volunteer, recreation and educational opportunities while developing critical life skills, participating in community life and engaging in satisfying activities. All services are customized based on each individual’s goals and interests.
