Meet Brian - Our 2022 Medical Rehabilitation Patient of the Year
Brian is an Easterseals staff favorite and it’s hard to not smile when he is in the Windsor Outpatient Therapy Office. He is always quick with a greeting, a story, an observation or a suggestion on how to fix something. This was not always the way for Brian who received special education services in school and started coming to Easterseals at the request of his mother. His mom Carla thought he would benefit from Speech Therapy and after research she found Easterseals.
