Easterseals is...Changing the way the world defines and views disability...whether physical, intellectual, emotional or social, by making profound, positive differences in people's lives...everyday.
Easterseals is dedicated to our 6,000+ local children with disabilities. We consider most of our programs - early intervention, autism diagnosis, specialized therapies, early childhood education - essential for these vulnerable populations.
In response to COVID-19, we’ve moved swiftly to re-invent our services, by:
- Opening up additional childcare spots, and expanding care to grades K-3, safely assisting essential community employees
- Shifting therapies and early intervention services to tele-health and tele-rehabilitation
- Creating e-learning lessons for pre-k and charter students to enhance at-home learning
Please donate today! Easterseals can and will continue to creatively adapt and go the extra mile for our children with special needs and the families who love them!
