Three cheers for autism program innovation
Posted on May 13th, 2008 by Erin
Last month at the Easter Seals Training Conference I had the great honor of accepting an award for my affiliate’s expansion of comprehensive services for children and families living with autism. The award is the Lou Lowenkron award for Program Innovation, and it’s given to one Easter Seals affiliate staff person each year.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and when a child has a developmental delay or disability, Easter Seals Peoria-Bloomington is a trusted resource in that village. Our affiliate is made up of gifted, dedicated and innovative therapists who recognize the needs of our children and families, and then find ways to meet those needs.
So while I’m humbled by the recognition bestowed upon me, I want to make it known that I alone accomplish little. It is only through our strong, committed and innovative team that we continue to grow and meet the ever-expanding needs of those we enthusiastically serve.
