Help and Hope for 90 Years
Easter Seals has been providing services and support to children and adults with disabilities, and to the families who love them, for 90 years. Over the last 20 years, Easter Seals has seen a dramatic increase in the number of people with autism the organization serves - both through its services developed specifically for people with autism and through services that include children and adults with autism among other service recipients.
As Many as One in 110 Children Now Diagnosed
The Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) new findings on the prevalence of autism validate what many have believed for some time - autism is the public health crisis of our time. The fact is, many families are living with autism today and there is an urgent need for increased funding, services and supports for individuals with autism. -- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2009
Autism is Treatable
While there is no known cause or cure, nor one single effective treatment - autism is treatable. People with autism, at any age, are capable of making significant progress through personalized interventions and therapy; and can and do lead meaningful lives. That's where Easter Seals comes in. Getting the right support at the earliest stage in life can help a child gain the skills he or she needs to be successful - but it's never too late!
Easter Seals autism services support people at any age:
- Providing early diagnosis and early intervention for very young children
- Supporting young adults through transitions from school-to-meaningful work and independent living opportunities
- Providing nationwide opportunities for employment and recreational programs to adults with autism
While there are a number of organizations researching to find the cause and cure for autism, Easter Seals is unique as one of the nation's leading provider of services and support for children and adults living with autism and their families. We're working nationally to provide children and adults with autism individualized treatment plans and comprehensive services. Easter Seals also advocates in Washington, DC, encouraging Congress to finance research to improve services and supports and pursuing public policy solutions for the challenges families with autism face.
CENTURY 21® & Easter Seals
The CENTURY 21 System has supported Easter Seals since 1979, raising over $100,000,000 for numerous disability programs. Easter Seals' 2010 Act for Autism Campaign was designed to raise funds and awareness for families living with autism and CENTURY 21 has once again, answered the call for support. Thank you for joining CENTURY 21 to Act for Autism today.
