Celebrating its 100th year in 2019, Easterseals has been helping people with disabilities gain greater independence. Our mission is to provide exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.
Easterseals of Southeastern PA services include approved private school, special classrooms, summer programs, assistive technology, early intervention programs and various outpatient speech, physical and occupational therapy programs. Children who receive these services are challenged with a variety of disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, spina bifida and physical and developmental delays.
We strive to hire those who are passionate about the pediatric special needs population, have strong communications skills, enjoy a team environment and want to make a difference in the lives of those they assist.
Funding for programs and services comes from a variety of sources. Over $1 million of our annual operating budget comes from charitable contributions with support coming from corporate and foundation grants, individual gifts and special events.
