Meet Sam

Ambassador, 2023, Johnstown

Meet Sam who will be serving as the 2023 Johnstown Ambassador.  We are pleased and excited to be working with him!

Diagnosed with Down Syndrome at birth, Sam began services at Easterseals at three years of age. When he came to Easterseals, he was only able to say a few words and had difficulty communicating with others. Sam's speech and communication skills have come a long way and continue to develop with weekly sessions at Easterseals.

Sam is a very active high school student, who participates in a variety of sports and engages with many students and teachers throughout the school. Speech therapy is helping Sam learn functional skills to say words clearer, talk in sentences.   His new communication skills enable him to follow directions and prepare for his future more easily.
