Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin Annual Report 2012

Connecting Children and Adults to a World of Possibilities


Our Profile Easter Seals provides care, education and therapies for approximately and their families each year in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, Racine, Kenosha, and Waukesha Counties.

10,000 individuals

We have earned a positive reputation and have built a respected brand from nearly of service to our community. We are seen as a “trusted expert” in disability and community issues. Here’s why:

80 years

50 years of job training experience and relationships

• We have nearly with local employers.

• We have the proven ability to adapt in a rapidly changing environment through two successful mergers and multiple program expansions. • We invest in infrastructure and human capital to achieve our vision by: Bringing together the best, brightest and most passionate staff with professional experiences across the lifespan. • We partner with leading organizations like Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and ManpowerGroup that allow local employers and companies to engage in our mission through volunteerism, financial support and service development. • We tap into the generosity of our region with over engaged in volunteer activities.

500 volunteers

“My 10 year old twins volunteer for Easter Seals’ Sports Clinics. I am finding this experience is invaluable to my boys. Not only are my boys having fun and meeting new friends, but they are serving as a positive peer support role models. This experience is teaching them to give back to their community, how to be more compassionate and understanding of individuals with special needs and is helping them growing their skills as positive leaders and role models.”


Accomplishments In 2012, we shared a new slogan with the community that included a promise to the children and adults with disabilities that we serve, “connecting you to a world of possibilities.” Our job at Easter Seals is not to define someone’s future, but open doors for their success to realize their hopes and dreams. To create the interventions, support and services that will make that promise a reality. Connecting our services to known outcomes and community impact was one of our main internal goals in 2012. Our staff reviewed research and professional literature to connect our service outcomes to larger community impact. As you page through our annual report, you will see that investing in Easter Seals creates a world of possibilities for the individuals and families we serve, and dividends for the larger community: in the workplace, in school and in future government expenditures. Two new initiatives demonstrate this larger impact. Our first Project SEARCH interns completed their internship at Children’s Hospital in June. Now, 90% of the interns have jobs and have begun their working journey, reducing their dependence on government support. Twelve students entered Project SEARCH last autumn, and as they intern, their eyes are opening to new possibilities in employment. In 2012, we experienced a first in our Autism services graduation! Kai has excelled so well since starting with us in 2010 that he no longer needed autism services, and even more, his school system saw only minimal support needed in the classroom, saving on the costs of special education. Kai, who was adopted from China, has a lifetime of possibilities before him. Connecting someone to a world of possibilities is not the job of one professional or professional team. It requires a dedicated family and support network with your help as a volunteer, donor or corporate partner that creates a special place called, Easter Seals where new possibilities are born every day!

Thank you!

Children Services

When identified early in a child’s life, Easter Seals early intervention services increase school readiness, decreasing the need for special education services by 50%, saving thousands of dollars in remediation costs for every child served.


Early Intervention “Before Easter Seals started working with Theo, he had problems paying attention to anything or communicating with anyone. After two years in the Birth-to-Three program, Theo is nearly unrecognizable from that toddler. He is turning into a little person, can communicate his needs, and even control some of his boundless energy. We remain grateful to the Easter Seals staff for making their two years with him count.�

331 children

Last year we served to help them reach their development milestones like taking their first steps or speaking their first words.

51%

of children we served last year no longer had a need for service or a need for special education classes beyond their 3rd birthday.


“Our goal is to provide all the necessary interventions as early as possible in order to ensure the best outcomes. Seeing Ben’s incredible progress thus far gives us so much hope and great inspiration.” When Ben Jimenez was just 18 months old, his parents noticed delays in speech. They spoke to their pediatrician about their concerns, and were told that his delays were due to being raised bilingual. Not completely satisfied with this explanation, Ben’s parents explored their options. Their search led them to Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin’s Birth to Three program. After six months in the B3 program, Ben is making great progress. When he talks, he speaks in full sentences and is understood by others. And, thanks to his knowledgeable team of speech and occupational therapists, Ben’s parents better understand his sensory issues, and fine motor-skill needs.

Ben’s mom explains, “Finding out his diagnosis (PDD-NOS) didn’t come as a big surprise, it was more like a relief. Our goal is to provide all the necessary interventions as early as possible in order to ensure the best outcomes. Seeing Ben’s incredible progress thus far gives us so much hope and great inspiration.” In fact, Ben is doing so well with communicating in his primary language, English, that his parents now have hope that someday he will be able to communicate with his grandparents in Spanish.

Investing in early intervention assures children a future.

Autism Services Easter Seals autism services increases a child’s ability to learn and grow alongside typically-developing peers, enabling them to develop into adults who live and work independently in our community, resulting in a savings of more than a $1 million per person in education and adult living costs.

“What I hoped Apollo would gain through therapy, he has already achieved. He still has one and a half years left of therapy, and I cannot wait to see what wonderful things he does. His possibilities are endless. “

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as many as children are diagnosed with autism.

1 in 88

Last year we served children in all of our autism services and provided over hours of autism therapies. At Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin, our programs, is touched by autism.

“We are so proud of the accomplishments our son has made with the help of Easter Seals! He was dismissed from all special education services, except speech therapy, and is functioning at an age appropriate level. His future looks bright and we are truly grateful!” Kai was adopted from an orphanage in China when he was 28 months old, and when his parents brought him home , he did not walk, speak, or interact with others. After seeing a specialist, Kai’s parents, Scott and Chris, were told that their son would be non-verbal and would likely require long-term care. They looked to Easter Seals for help.“Of course, I was devastated by the long term prognosis and relieved when our son was accepted into the autism program at Easter Seals. His therapists were all caring, insightful and astute, and worked fantastically with our kiddo! Our lead therapists and staff were flexible with our changing schedule and coordinated well with teachers at my son’s school.”

Kai began services with our program in September of 2010 and showed amazing progress after only nine months of autism services. Talking was his first, most noticeable change, from being nonverbal to using over 75 words. He began stating his wants and needs, rather than pointing, and soon he expanded to using complete sentences. Because he was able make his needs known more easily, Kai had fewer negative outbursts and more meaningful interactions with family and peers. He began to enjoy interactive activities like reading books and having someone read to him. Kai, once isolated, now participates socially with his friends in school. He is also on target with his academic skills like spelling, counting, reading and writing.


Summer Camp

Easter Seals recreation and respite camp programs reduce risk for children’s health problems such as obesity and heart disease by engaging in physical activities that are adapted to meet their individual needs.


Respite Camp

200 campers

Each year over enjoy a full array of summer activities and community outings. Parents and caregivers benefit from the peace of mind knowing that their child is in a safe, nurturing environment which meets their individual needs while they are at work or taking the opportunity for respite. Over half of the campers who attend our Milwaukee and Waukesha summer camps demonstrate

increased independence

“Tim has autism and loves the routine of camp. He is smiling from the time I drop him off in the morning until his afternoon pickup. Summer camp means the world to him and our family.�


Camp Yellow Ribbon

Military bases are known to provide the largest support network for families enduring a deployment. Many children share deployment experiences, and their local schools often provide programs, including deployment support groups. But most military families in Wisconsin, including most who attend Camp Yellow Ribbon, do not live on a military base. Easter Seals has developed this specialized camp to ensure that we are supporting military children and families no matter where they live.


Camp Yellow Ribbon In 2012,

30 military children, ages 7-15, attended

Camp Yellow Ribbon. We are proud to partner with organizations like Mental Health America of Wisconsin and our Easter Seals Nurturing experts to provide activities like journaling, team and trust building and other projects geared towards sharing their fears and feelings.

Thank you to the following partners who make this camp possible.

Adult Day Services

It is estimated that due to caregiving responsibilities, the total retirement funds of a typical caregiver is reduced by nearly $305,000. Easter Seals Adult Day Services improve the overall quality of life and financial stability of families and caregivers of adults with chronic illnesses or disabilities. Our adult services allow caregivers to earn a living while their loved one develops new skills and friendships while their special health needs are met.

Easter Seals Community Support services (Care Management Unit and Guardianship services) reduce costly institutional placements, saving an average of $452 per month for each individual in Wisconsin’s long term care system by coordinating care and tapping into community-based services improving quality of life and health for individuals by allowing them to live in the community of their choice.


Support Services

Janice has been a part of our Easter Seals family since 2009. After a spinal cord injury, she became paraplegic and was forced to move into a nursing home. After being referred to Easter Seals CMU program, our staff was able to help Janice find an apartment, find funding for a specialized wheel chair, and obtain other household items so she could move out of the nursing home and into her own apartment. Since her move, her quality of life and independence have significantly increased.

86% of our participants report that they are as independent as possible and some, like Janice, are now living on their own instead of in a group home.

670 people

Last year we served a total of in all of our Easter Seals Support Services. Many of them were served in our Guardianship program, where we are regarded as a leading provider of these services.

“Kevin came to us with limited experience, and he’s done a masterful job of learning tasks.”


Project SEARCH

In 2012, Easter Seals launched it’s first Project SEARCH, and 90% of our interns found their first job within a year of their completion of Project SEARCH.

Project SEARCH was developed in 1996 by Nurse J. Erin Riehle, then the Director of the Emergency Department at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. As the flagship program, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital provides technical assistance for replication and overall leadership to Project SEARCH worldwide.


Project SEARCH Marcus is 20 years old. After graduating from High School, he was looking for what to do next. His teacher suggested that he look into Project SEARCH, a new Easter Seals vocational program. Marcus was excited for the great opportunity to develop his work skills. He was one of six participants in the 1st graduating class in 2012. During his rotations, he took great interest in the Children’s Hospital Distribution Center. His job was to deliver supplies and equipment to patient rooms, as well as sterilize equipment. Upon graduating from Project SEARCH, he applied for an opening in that department, and was hired. Marcus really enjoys learning new tasks, and working with his team at the hospital.

Easter Seals is proud to announce that we will be opening our second Project SEARCH Fall of 2013 in partnership with:

“Drew is the type of individual any employer would want on their team. Drew has a positive attitude, professional behavior and excellent memory skills to complete job tasks.”
