Description & Services
DescriptionEaster Seals offers the following programs dedicated to helping children, youth and young adults achieve their full individual potential and future independence. 
 
* Residential and Family Camp  
Provide a camping experience to a child that is fun and safe while promoting the development of life skills that enhance future independence building self-esteem through activities that challenge each child's individual abilities and providing opportunities for social interaction and building friendships. 
 
*Recreational Choices Funding Program  
Parents choose a recreation program that they feel is best for their child. This could include another residential camping program; day camp; swimming lessons; or another recreational program that takes place during the summer.  
Easter Seals will fund up to $250 towards the cost. This program is open to all children/youth (5-18yrs) registered with Easter Seals. 
 
* Direct Financial Assistance  
Offers direct financial assistance to individual families. Easter Seals Ontario acts as a third party funder and as such has no role in prescribing or recommending equipment, selecting a vendor/contractor or in the relationship between the parent and vendor.  
Children and young adults (birth to 19th birthday) with physical disabilities, who are registered with Easter Seals Ontario, qualify for financial assistance towards the purchase of eligible services and special equipment. 
 
Easter Seals financial assistance program picks up where the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care's Assistive Devices Program (ADP), insurance and other family resources leave off. The list of eligible equipment and services is reviewed regularly and priority is given to mobility and communication devices. Easter Seals' funding contribution is based on availability of funds.
