Meet Tyler

Tyler, Johnstown, 2020

Tyler has been receiving speech therapy from Easterseals for about 3 years. Tyler was born with Down Syndrome, a genetic chromosome disorder causing developmental and intellectual delays. His mother says, "Easterseals has helped Tyler develop communication skills by teaching him speech fundamentals and sign language.  Our speech therapist, provides one-on-one therapy sessions with Tyler and myself, she encourages Tyler to use his speech and communication skills through play and fun learning activities.  Easterseals also supports our family by teaching us ways to incorporate Tyler’s newly learned skills into our daily life. The therapist is extremely helpful with educating us on ways to help aid Tyler’s speech development. Tyler’s speech and communication has definitely progressed by the help of Easterseals. Our family is very happy with the services they provide.”
