Easterseals Massachusetts

Spreading Holiday Cheer

Thank you for helping us give the gift of play this holiday season! Supporters like you, dedicated Starbucks employees, Assistive Technology volunteers, and many others all came together to collect toys and spread cheer that will have a lasting impact.
Collaborating with Starbucks for a Holiday Toy Drive was a great success that resulted in over 500 toys donated and given to Military & Veteran families across the state. Additionally, the Assistive Technology department collected 32 toys that were then specifically switch-adapted for children with disabilities in Massachusetts. We're thrilled to have your support and cannot wait to accomplish more in the coming New Year!

Stories From Our Clients

Zeke Kittinger | Augmentative Communication

Zeke Kittinger is now a fifth grader at South Elementary School in Hingham, MA, but he was a preschooler when he first started working with Easterseals Massachusetts. Zeke is on the Autism Spectrum and is a smart, funny, book-loving student who loves his family and his dog. He also happens to be someone who uses Augmentative Communication (AAC).

Bo | College Navigator

For Bo, the crushing weight of low expectations fueled his dream and determination to succeed. Bo, who has autism, dyslexia, and other physical and learning disabilities, entered 9th grade barely able to spell nor write more than three-to-four-word sentences. During middle school, a pivotal time in an adolescent’s growth and development, Bo was told by many adults that he wasn’t “smart” and would never “amount too much.” At the same time, his mother Cynthia was told to encourage her son to find work requiring minimal skills with good job security.
