our LOCATIONS IN 2010 In 2010, we relocated our Workforce Development and Training Center to two new locations. Our Workforce Development and Training Center is housed in a beautiful 69,000 square foot industrial space, across the street from the Waukesha County Airport. This facility houses operations for our workforce programs and contract services. An additional building was purchased in downtown Waukesha to serve as the home of our Waukesha Adult Day and After School programs.

opportunties, growth & Change The National Basketball Association has a slogan, “Where Amazing Happens!” Many NBA players are capable of physical feats that all of us less gifted people wish we could do. “Where Amazing Happens!” also really struck a chord with us in describing our own 2010 experience at Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin.   In 2010, we launched our Applied Behavior Analysis program for young children living with autism, started our new Camp Yellow Ribbon for 25 “young heroes” that were coping with a parent deployed in service of our country, began developing new partnerships for community employment options and converted our Long Term Support program to Family Care Care Management. For most agencies that would be rightly judged a good year.   But not for Easter Seals, where more amazing things happened. Our talented staff and Board Volunteers brought Easter Seals and Waukesha Training Center together to form a stronger agency to withstand the uncertainties of our current economy. We provide integrated services from early intervention for children, to work and recreation options. We support adults as they age through our corporate guardianship and adult day programs. Integrating two agencies is a tremendously challenging and rewarding experience. We know from experience. This was not our first merger, we’ve done it once before in 2005. Our team worked through the myriad of details on employee benefits, developing new financial systems, improving technical systems while still meeting the day to day responsibilities in touching the lives of 10,000 people in our area.   Most would assume that covers 2010, but, not for Easter Seals –where even more amazing things continued to happen. In early March, we welcomed the opportunity to sell an aging facility, with the


condition we had to acquire and occupy new space within six months. We met the deadline and opened our new 69,000 square foot, Waukesha Workforce Center in September and opened our new Life Enhancement Adult Day Center in downtown Waukesha before the end of 2010.   We are sure 2011 will be full of new opportunities and challenges. We are confident of our ability to move forward offering new employment opportunities for our work training participants, growing our commercial services and expanding our mission to include those veterans needing help on the home front. We are confident because we have supporters, friends and donors like you. You believe in our vision for a community that welcomes all people. You believe everyone can find a way to work and to earn. You believe as we do at Easter Seals. Thank you for helping us make amazing a daily reality.

Board Member Robert Ranus

I am happy that I have been part of the Easter Seals family since 2008. Easter Seals continues to impress me because they truly strive to increase independence, maximize opportunities, minimize barriers, and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities. By volunteering my time as a Board member, I am able to utilize my educational background and expertise to assist Easter Seals to continue to offer a variety of services to individuals with disabilities to address their life challenges and achieve their personal goals.

Working to make life better for individuals with “special needs” is very important to me. As a result of the merger between Easter Seals and the Waukesha Training Center, I believe it is essential that individuals with special needs continue to have a safe place to work, develop and succeed. At a time when funding support and laws are constantly changing, I felt the need to be involved with Easter Seals to ensure that they are able to continue to provide services.



Early Intervention The Birth to Three Early Intervention Program offers many types of services for children that have a developmental delay or a diagnosed condition that puts them at risk for developmental delays. Getting the right support, personalized interventions and therapy at the earliest stage in life can help children gain the skills they need to reach their full potential. We also have an array of programs for children and adults who live with autism for every stage of their life. Things seemed strange to Ryan’s parents when their toddler was not talking. He refused to drink from a Sippy cup and • Birth to 3 Early Intervention was still not eating solid foods. He did not like to be held and still was not walking • P.L.A.Y. Project ™ although he was nearly two years old. • Speech Therapy Ryan seemed to be retreating into his • Physical Therapy own world, and mom and dad were • Occupational Therapy deeply worried. Ryan’s parents, Kerry and Kelly, recognized these signs all too well. They were some of the familiar behaviors that Timmy, Ryan’s older brother, displayed before his autism diagnosis. Their intuition “Because of Easter Seals Early Intervention, Ryan engages with his family more and is more was confirmed when they took social and connected,” says Kerry


Ryan to the doctor and he was officially diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) at age two.   He was immediately referred for early intervention therapies and because Easter Seals was already a familiar and trusted provider to one of their family members, Ryan was enrolled in our Birth to Three program.   Physical therapists began working with Ryan and in three short months, he was able to walk. Teachers, speech and occupational therapists continue to work with him on other challenges including speech, socialization, adversion to solid foods and drinking from a cup rather than a bottle.   Ryan’s adverse reactions to anything unfamiliar on his palette not only irritate him, but they make him gag and spit it out. In order to make this hurdle more fun for him, once a week, our occupational therapist meets Ryan and his parents at Mayfair Mall to help him experiment with new foods in the active environment of the mall. Crumbled solids such as corn bread and cereal are placed in one of his favorite foods, ice cream, for him to experience.   While the intake of solid foods may take a little longer for Ryan to adjust to, with the help of our early intervention therapies he is beginning to show progress with his speech and socialization skills. And maybe the most meaningful breakthrough for his parents has been that Ryan has found a new way to show his affection by leaning his forehead into theirs as his special way to kiss. This action, in itself, is a huge milestone for a little boy who did not like to be held or cuddled.

AUTISM SERVICES Autism is a developmental disability that affects average brain function, development and social interactions. Affecting nearly 1 in 100 families, autism is recognized as “the largest growing disability” in the nation. Children and adults with autism have challenges in the areas of communication, socialization and restricted/repetitive behaviors. While there is no known cause or cure, autism is treatable. Easter Seals offers an array of complementary autism programs for people of all ages. • Applied Behavior Analysis

Meeting the physical and mental health needs of the members of the Armed Forces having served in Iraq and Afghanistan is overwhelming and continues to grow. With the help of collaborating organizations representing mental health and veterans organizations, Easter Seals felt it was important to meet some of the needs identified for our returning service men and women.   One of the most pressing needs was to address the immediate call for support systems for the entire family. In August of 2010, we launched our first Military and Veterans Initiative program, Camp Yellow Ribbon to focus on the respite and nurturing needs of military children.   Camp Yellow Ribbon is a week-long, overnight

summer respite camp for children of parents currently deployed or returning from deployment. This camp encourages our participants to “just be a kid” by having a fun week of typical camp activities including swimming, fishing, canoeing, archery and activities to teach the campers team building, self confidence, communication and leadership skills.   In addition to the regular camp activities and with the collaborative efforts of Mental Health America of Wisconsin, therapeutic discussions were integrated into select camp activities to help campers open up and share fears, pride or frustrations associated with being a military child.


With parents in all service branches, children ages 7 to 13 attended Camp Yellow Ribbon.

Workforce training Center

Easter Seals believes that every individual has the ability to work. Our Community based employment program uses a self-discovery discovery process and job carving techniques to assess a person’s unique contributions and then match those interests to an employment setting to help them be successful in their jobs.

That job was • Job Training your first opportunity to • Job Placement Services gain independence and • Contract Services discover your strengths or • The Ability One Program weaknesses as you chose • WISE: Wisconsin Senior your future career path. Employment Scott is a high school senior that is currently working on this discovery process, as he works toward his first paid job. He has a passion for computers and thrives on projects that fulfill his need for structure and repetition.   Scott’s first job training opportunity was at Easter Seals Child Development Center using a computer and scanner to scan client records for billing. The match of technology and structure was a perfect fit for his interests.   After completing his training in December, it was time for him to find a new training opportunity to use his skills, with a community


based employer. Working with his job coach and employment specialist, Scott was able to find an amazing opportunity in the Health Information Management Department (HIM) at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare-North Market.   The HIM department has over 60 employees who are responsible for the massive task of scanning all of Wheaton’s patient information within 24 hours of their appointments. Scott’s department is responsible for the processing of that information for three hospitals and three outpatient facilities. He is one of six employees that concentrates on the multiple step scanning process.   This position has increased Scott’s responsibility and level of his independent work skills. He still has the support of his job coach, but as Scott grows as an employee he is learning to troubleshoot more on his own and work more directly with his department supervisor for support.   Scott’s happy nature brings a new, lightened atmosphere to the office that by the nature of the work is typically quiet. “He has been a great addition to our team. He brightens the office with his obvious enthusiasum and lightheartedness,” said Angela Crayton, Supervisor, Health Information.


In 2010 we served new individuals, of the trainees felt that they including Scott, with supportive competitive improved their confidence in their work employment opportunities with all of them abilities and had increased opportunities choosing their personal work goals that to connect with their community. play to their strengths.
