Wakefield, RI – Easter Seals RI Early Intervention services was granted nearly $3,000 from the John E. Fogarty Foundation which will be used to furnish a fully functional therapy space for our new Visual Learners therapy group.
The Visual Learners therapy group will focus on a small group of children, at a time, under age three who have been diagnosed with autism or identified as having characteristics of autism.
Early Intervention services are designed to enhance the development of infant and toddlers (birth to age 3), if the child is experiencing developmental delays, have a certain diagnosed condition, or whose circumstances are likely to result in significant developmental problems. Some children are eligible because of their diagnosis.
It is the goal of Easter Seals RI Early Intervention services to ensure that a child’s development is on track during those first critical years. Concerns addressed during this time can prevent secondary problems that may interfere with learning, playing, building friendships, and developing self-confidence.
Easter Seals RI provides exceptional services to ensure that all children and young adults with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. Easter Seals RI served 500 clients throughout the state. To learn more about Easter Seals RI, visit www.easterseals.com/rhodeisland.
