Our Programs banner graphic


Throughout the State of Vermont, Easter Seals is dedicated to helping families to live, learn, work, and play in their communities. We are the leading agency in the state in working hand-in-hand with the Department for Children and Families (DCF) to find family-centered solutions to problems. Many children suffer not only from the effects of their disabilities, but also from abuse, neglect, bullying, and lack of sufficient help and understanding. Easter Seals is known for finding practical, realistic solutions and helping parents understand and work with their school systems. We empower parents to be more effective in teaching, listening to, and in understanding their children’s needs. We offer direct assistance to our families to improve the situations they are dealing with.
