Matteo also known as Matty is an adorable, and incredibly sweet, four-year-old who loves to learn and is an avid sports fan. He has a very rare neurodevelopmental disorder which can affect speech development and cause severe low muscle tone. Matty’s parents chose Easterseals for center-based programming because it is the perfect place to feed his passion for learning with the therapeutic support he needs. Since he began attending Easterseals, his awareness of the world around him has increased, and he is learning to use an assistive technology device and sign language to communicate. When he’s not at school Matty loves watching sports. This includes watching his twin brother Nico play soccer or heading to South Philly for a baseball or hockey game. Outside of sports, he loves hanging out with his twin cousins and all things Sesame Street. Matty has found the perfect balance of enjoying the world around him and learning everything he can. We can’t wait to see where his passion for learning takes him!
