boy with one arm up in the air and smiling

Jonathan is a dynamic five-year-old who sees the best in everyone and possesses a confidence that allows him to be the most vibrant and colorful version of himself. Jonathan has autism and when his parents felt he needed more services, they turned to Easterseals. He attends the Friendship Academy, our inclusive preschool program and receives occupational and speech therapies. Since he started, his communication skills have grown tremendously. Jonathan has become more social and has learned to identify when he’s feeling overwhelmed and how to share that with his teachers, therapists, and family. When he’s not at school, Jonathan volunteers with his mom to hand out food to families in his community facing food insecurity. This community has watched him grow and celebrated every success. He also loves to pretend to be a mechanic and watch anything related to cars. Jonathan is everything wonderful a five-year-old boy can be. He is energetic, fun-loving, kind and an amazing snuggler! And of course, he loves Paw Patrol!
