For more than 75 years, Easter Seals Southeast WI has been offering help and hope to children and adults living with disabilities, and to the families who love them. Through therapy, training, education and support services, Easter Seals creates life-changing solutions so that people with disabilities can live, learn, work and play.
We are very proud to announce that this June we celebrated the graduation of one of our autism services participants, Kai.
Kai was adopted from an orphanage in China when he was 28 months old. Upon return home with his parents Kai did not walk, speak, or interact with others. After seeing a specialist, Kai’s parents were told their son would be non-verbal and require long-term care. They looked to Easter Seals for help. “Of course I was devastated by the long-term prognosis and relieved when our son was accepted into the autism program at Easter Seals. His therapists were all caring, insightful and astute, and worked fantastically with our kiddo! On lead therapists and staff were flexible with our changing schedule and coordinated well with teachers at my son’s school.”
