Program Short Term Success

Providing quality daycare services allows families to be ensured that their children are learning and growing in a positive environment. Adult Day Health encourages participants to be as independent as possible in a medically supervised environment. Adaptive Recreation provides opportunities for participants and families to enjoy leisure activities.

Program Long term Success Long-term, great child-care impacts a child's future and educational success. The Adult Day Health program encourages clients participation through structured activities which fosters learning and independence. Adaptive Recreation promotes healthy and active lifestyles with the goal to improve the overall quality of life for people with disabilities through education, exposure to adaptive equipment and adaptive recreation experiences in the community.

Program Success Monitored By For both Creative Beginnings and Adult Day Health we use client and family satisfaction surveys to analyze program results. With our Adaptive Recreation program, we solicit client input, community partners suggestions and review the results with our Board of Directors. 
Examples of Program Success
  • Good feedback received from public and private schools on kindergarten student readiness
  • Good feedback received from satisfaction surveys
  • A recent example of a successful outcome for the Adaptive Recreation program came from the wife of a participant who is a paraplegic. She commented on how great it was for their children to see their dad be an active participant in a sport.
Program Comments
CEO Comments The purpose statement for Easter Seals is to change the way the world defines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people's lives everyday. This is the cornerstone which shapes our planning and service delivery every day and will guide us as we evaluate future programs. Providing services from infancy through adulthood for people with special needs is a unique opportunity.
