Let Me Tell You a Story

Let me tell you about Avery, our 2022 Child Ambassador, who was diagnosed with Trisomy 12p, a rare genetic condition. Avery is non-speaking, has global developmental delays, intellectual disability, autism and other medical diagnoses. Avery requires special education and multiple therapies at school as well as lifelong care. Since attending Easterseals, Avery has blossomed socially. Danielle, Avery's mother says, "We are so grateful for the strength and support of Easterseals as we raise Avery to be her beautiful, neurodivergent self." With your help, Easterseals can provide Avery and others with many supports including classroom & recreational supports. On Giving Tuesday, will you consider a donation to help create happy endings to our many stories?
