- One in 88 children have autism
- So many great programs
- Together we can build an answer
In the United States, more than two million individuals and their families live with autism and the number keeps growing. Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago has three Autism Therapeutic Schools, manages two The Autism Program (TAP) Service Centers and a cadre of acclaimed programs and services to provide education, evidence-based therapeutic interventions and special assistance to meet the needs of individuals and their families living with autism.
Easter Seals completed Phase One of a four-phase project to construct a new Therapeutic School and Center for Autism Research in Chicago. It's a big step toward our goal of empowering our students to be their best. But we still have a long way to go and we need your help in order to complete the pool and gymnasium, research facilities as well as independent living areas.
