Sahar is an inquisitive, energetic child who is quick to learn. After she was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and a speech delay, her parents were eager to find the right supports to get Sahar where she needed to be before starting kindergarten. Their relationship with Easterseals began with the ABA Therapy program, where they worked one-on-one with an ABA therapist to learn communication techniques and interventions to reduce challenging behaviors. Sahar’s mother states, “it was like a gate that needed to open for us to make a difference in Sahar’s life finally opened. With Easterseals, we felt like we found a place where we had backup and support. Sometimes as a parent, you don’t know what to do for your child and there is nowhere to go for guidance. Easterseals is our place to go. We trust them because they are experts, and they know our daughter and they know what we are going through."
