Jamie, age 23

Easterseals Metropolitan Chicago

Jamie was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) when he was 4-years-old. At 7, Jamie was barely verbal and had a permanent scar from banging the back of his head against the bedroom wall. That's when his family enrolled him at Easterseals Therapeutic Day School. Soon after, Jamie joined many of his fellow students competing in local Special Olympics events.

Through ups and downs, Jamie continued to make progress gaining responsibility and self-control. When he became an adult, Easterseals counselors helped him get a job at a produce store. After he graduated, they gave him a job as an assistant in the school's adult vocational program. And most recently, Jamie competed at the Special Olympics in China - bringing home several medals.
