Nine-year-old Conor and his twin brother Will are often found reading a book and singing along to their favorite songs. Not surprisingly, the twins spend a lot of time together and thanks to Easterseals Children’s Therapy services, Conor is meeting his milestones with his brother. 

“We love Easterseals and are so thankful Conor has been able to continue with his therapies there. He has made tremendous strides because of the therapies at Easterseals. All of his therapists have been very professional and develop strategies to meet Conor’s needs. We would not have access to all of the resources Conor needs to progress without Easterseals,” Conor’s mom, Donna, says. “Conor loves his weekly therapy sessions!”

When Conor started receiving therapy he was barely able to hold up his head and needed support sitting up. Therapists worked diligently to help strengthen his core so he could become more independent. Later they worked with him to prepare him for school “by challenging him and pushing him to do his best.”

“Conor is thriving at school and life thanks to his therapies and the support he receives from his family, teachers, and friends,” Donna says. “We suggest investigating all resources available to improve your child’s development. It has been helpful to find other families who are going through similar experiences. Be patient because your child will progress on his/her timeline. It can be a frustrating process at times, but keep encouraging and challenging your child.”
