Easterseals South Florida

Dog Is A Senior's Best Friend

Marta had been a thriving participant, actively engaging in a myriad of activities until the COVID-19 pandemic caused centers to close for quarantine. The closures of centers have disproportionately affected seniors and their caregivers due to the extended period of isolation. With assistance from Easterseals South Florida, Martha received a Robotic Pet from The Florida Department of Elder Affairs to provide companionship. There is a reason we call dog a man’s best friend. The Robotic Pets respond to motion, touch, and sound. Now, this interactive pet is Martha’s companion and helps her to combat feelings of isolation and depression by improving her mood and quality of life.

Easterseals South Florida Re-opens

Now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year for children ages 3 to 5 at no cost! Head Start is a free, comprehensive school readiness program which enhances the social, physical, and cognitive development of children.
The Americans With Disabilities Act Celebrates 30 Years
During the challenging times of COVID-19, we are reminded how important it is to create a world where each of us is 100% included in all aspects of society. We celebrate the progress the ADA has made for people with disabilities and acknowledge the work that lies ahead.
Samuel & Esteban Ocampo
Esteban & Samuel are autistic brothers who attend Easterseals South Florida Culinary Arts middle & high schools as well as the aftercare program sponsored by The Children’s Trust. The brothers are only too happy to show off their culinary skills from home.
