Early Childhood Services

The first three years of a child’s life can have a decisive, long-lasting impact. Easterseals Midwest’s Early Childhood Services create nurturing environments that educate and include children of all abilities. Our goal is to partner with families and communities to promote a bright future for each child — as a team, we work together to develop a custom plan to meet your family’s needs.

Applied Behavior Analysis Services

Our ABA Services throughout the state are based on the most up-to-date research in the field of autism. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts will help you understand your child's development while designing goals and interventions that embrace your child's unique interests. Through ongoing assessments and input, we'll develop an individualized plan that aims to help your child develop the skills necessary to live their happiest, healthiest life.

Therapies and Assessments

Easterseals provides Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), occupational, and music therapies. Early intervention therapists work with families to assist each child’s development and offer education and support for parents. Families choose the setting that works best: home, our Early Childhood Center, or a mutually agreed upon location.

Autism Services

Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that affects communication, social behavior, and development. Autism affects one in 36 children in the United States, but with early diagnosis, intervention, and behavioral techniques, children with autism can live full, rewarding lives in the community. At Easterseals, we customize our services to meet each individual’s and family’s need for support.

Home Visiting

Home Visiting Services offer a range of resources for families, including certified parent educators who visit homes to provide additional support. Home Visiting Services also include developmental screenings for children, service recommendations, and free support for families with children with and without disabilities, from birth to 36 months old or three to 19 years. Families also have the opportunity to meet other families and children through playgroups and events.
