Nearly 56.7 million Americans face disability each day and Parents Magazine has given Easterseals the platform to bring the conversation to the “dinner table”. Easterseals Senior Vice President, Integrated Marketing, Jennifer Bielat applauds Parents Magazine for its continued efforts to bring disability to the forefront.
Moms and dads whose children have special needs can teach all parents a thing or two about priorities and perspective and that’s what October’s feature story is all about.
The October cover of Parents features Los Angeles mommy blogger, Amanda Booth and 2 year-old son, Micah, who has Down Syndrome. “First we taught him to sit up, and then we taught him to go from a sitting to a standing position,” says Booth, who lives in Los Angeles and blogs at TheBeardAndBump.com.
Easterseals and Parents have been partners for a decade, as they share a common bond supporting and providing resources for parents of kids with disabilities. Easterseals' longstanding efforts to help families with special needs is mentioned in the October Parents Editor's Letter.
For nearly 100 years, Easterseals has been the indispensable resource for people and families challenged by disability. Now, as America faces a broad range of new issues, we make a major, positive, life—changing difference in the lives of people and families challenged by today's disabilities. The work we do every day is redefining disability for the 21st century.
