Easterseals provides programs designed to help children and adults learn—and often re-learn—basic functions, master skills needed to develop and thrive, and be sharp and active as they age.
Making Our Lives Accessible
Accessibility means breaking down barriers in our communities -- and the wider world -- to ensure everyone has opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their community.
If you don’t have a disability, you may not think twice about the curb cuts you cross on your way to work, closed captions that appear on your favorite TV shows, or signs marked “handicap accessible,” but to people with disabilities and their families, these are accessibility features that are vital for full inclusion in society.
Learn more about accessibility and the ways in which we’re building a more accessible world. Our national website has information on accessibility in employment, public spaces, transportation, healthcare, technology, housing, and safety tips for emergencies and evacuations.
