Just after his first birthday, Landon was diagnosed with catastrophic epilepsy and later with Autism, ADHD, and other developmental delays. When he enrolled in Easterseals at 3 years old, he was nonverbal, unsteady on his feet, and struggling to learn.
With lots of care and support from those around him and the Easterseals team, Landon graduated from the Easterseals School for Special Needs. He is a star athlete and no longer nonverbal. His mom says that he comes home every day full of stories of his classmates and teachers. After successfully graduating from the Easterseals program, now 9 years old, Landon started at his new public school just this past fall.
At Easterseals Western and Central Pennsylvania, we are incredibly proud of Landon and the thousands of people with disabilities and their families we see every single day.
