Siblings are special too at Easter Seals

Family services can help families who have children with special needs stay together, and Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region will be able to continue to provide those services thanks to a $22,788 grant given by the Amicus Foundation.

The grant will fund continued support services for parents and siblings of children with disabilities through a part-time parent liaison, a Summer Siblings Program and a Parent Resource Library.

The Summer Sibling Program provides children who have siblings with special needs with the opportunity to meet other siblings who understand and know what it’s like to have a sibling with a disability.
