Easter Seals


I just read a STAGGERING statistic! 

It was that less than 1 in 5 children is diagnosed with their developmental delay within their first five years

This is COMPLETELY unacceptable to me as a mother, an educator, an advocate and as a human being. 
If you are as outraged as I am, please read on to see how you can change this statistic.

I just signed a petition to support the millions of young children with undiagnosed learning and health issues who never receive desperately needed treatment and therapies. I believe all kids deserve a chance to start school ready and able learn alongside other children their age.

Will you add your name to the Easter Seals petition and support our country's most vulnerable kids?  (Just click on the link and it literally takes less than a minute)

When kids with disabilities or at risk of developmental delays get the treatment and therapy they need before the age of five therapies that work to strengthen their physical, social, emotional and intellectual abilities they can succeed in school and achieve their full potential. However, we as a nation don't invest nearly enough in these vital programs.

If you believe, as I do, that all kids deserve a chance to learn alongside their peers, build lifelong skills, and achieve their dreams, please speak out today!
