Easterseals provides hands-on, comprehensive, vital programs and support to help people reach their full potential—regardless of challenges, needs or disabilities.
Adult Day Services
Easterseals Washington is now managing the three Elder and Adult Day Services (EADS) programs in Bellevue, Bremerton, and Des Moines. This program ensures that adults with disabilities have the opportunity to live, learn, work and play as a vital member of their own community.
Our Olympic Peninsula Autism Center uses intensive Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy to help children with autism develop their social and educational skills at the most critical time in their lives. ABA therapy is recognized as the most effective treatment for autism, and has enabled children across the country to lead fulfilling lives, and keep up educationally with their typically developing peers.
Child Development Centers
Working parents need a quality environment for their children that is safe, nurturing, and fosters their children's educational and physical development. Easterseals Child Development Centers support families in Washington by providing the highest quality childcare and education for children with and without disabilities. We provide inclusive, quality child development services and support the needs of children of all abilities.
Easterseals Washington's Workforce Development program provides Community Access. Individuals with disabilities over 62 years of age may be retired but still need that one-to-one support to access their community for everyday activities.
Military & Veterans
Easterseals Washington Workforce Development Program provides coordination services to the U.S. Air Force Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) Respite Program. Easterseals Washington also serves a number of military families through our Olympic Peninsula Autism Center, our Child Development Centers, and the Kitsap County Parent Coalition (KCPC) we operate.
Camp Stand By Me is about all the things children and adults can do -- swim, ride horses, sing, eat s'mores and more. Easterseals Washington has camping & respite programs to provide a safe, barrier-free environment for children and adults to experience all aspects of camp without usual limitations.
Kitsap County Parent Coalition (KCPC)
In addition to our four core programs, Easterseals Washington operates the Kitsap County Parent Coalition (KCPC). The Coalition provides education, advocacy and referrals to help people with developmental disabilities get the support and services they need to improve their lives. Our Parent Coalition Coordinator arranges regular coalition meetings with special guest speakers and prepares newsletters and alerts on issues important to the disability community. KCPC provides more than support to people with disabilities, it strengthens their families as well, providing parent mentoring for caregivers and volunteer advocates for special education issues.
