We just opened a new facility here at Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region, and it has made the news. The new space offers bilingual social work therapies in English and Spanish in addition to our recognized therapy services.

Our President and CEO Theresa Forthofer was quoted in a TribLocal article saying that this new facility (in Elgin, Illinois) is “a vital step” in helping more families. “The quality of our facility was achieved with careful planning in order to match the excellence of our skilled and experienced therapists,” she told the reporter, pointing out that our other space was older, darker and very crowded. “Our therapists are some of the best in the nation. We wanted (the space) to match that level of service.”

Every year here at Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region we provide physical therapy, social work programs, early learning intervention and occupational and speech therapy for more than 1,000 people who have autism and other disabilities. Our new facility is 7,200 square feet and features more spacious halls, natural light and larger therapy rooms for us to serve these clients.

Look for us in the news again next week — we’re having our official ribbon cutting and open house on Thursday, March 8!

    Sounds like a high-quality program that really does care about the kids they serve. With so much bad news in the media, glad to hear about this. Thank you.
