Easterseals...changing the way the world defines and views disability

Today’s disabilities are different from what they used to be. Children with autism, school age children and young adults with invisible, social, education and emotional challenges, adults who need durable medical equipment — all told, a staggering 1 in 4 people face a disability. Easterseals has the expertise to help.

Easterseals programs and services fill the gap

Easterseals’ purpose is to change the way the world defines and views disability by making profound, positive differences in people’s lives every day. We achieve this by creating and managing programs and services, and by strategically partnering with our community’s most respected and prominent medical, educational and social-service organizations.
