Mission Statement

Easter Seals Rhode Island creates solutions that change the lives of children and adults with disabilities or special needs, their families and communities

Description

Primary Easter Seals services include:

Medical Rehabilitation
Early Intervention
Physical Therapy
Occupational Therapy
Speech and Hearing Therapy
Job Training and Employment
Child Care
Adult Day Services
Camping and Recreation

Easter Seals also advocates for the passage of legislation to help people with disabilities achieve independence, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Passed in 1990, the ADA prohibits discrimination against anyone who has a mental or physical disability, guaranteeing the civil rights of people with disabilities.

At the core of the Easter Seals organization is a common passion for caring, shared by its 13,000 staff members and thousands of volunteers, and by those who support its mission. This heart-felt commitment to helping people with disabilities and their families is what Easter Seals is all about.
