Your support provides hope for children like Mica

Mica was born in December of 2016 with Down syndrome. Initially, his parents had a lot of questions in mind regarding how Mica would progress and what he would be able to accomplish.  These questions led them to proactively enroll Mica in Easter Seals Greater Houston’s Early Childhood Intervention Program at one month old so he could receive physical, speech, and occupational therapy. Over the past three years, Mica has made significant progress. He is now able to sit up, crawl and walk by himself.  His speech, comprehension, and self-help abilities have significantly grown and he has morphed into a social butterfly. His family has thoroughly enjoyed working with Easter Seals’ therapists, and is extremely thankful for their knowledge, professionalism and dedication to helping Mica reach his milestones.

Your provision helps families like Mica's overcome the daily challenges that come along with having a disability. You provide hope for their future. You are the key to their success.
