Milestones of Independence

Our Easterseals Crossroads Annual Report 2018 continuation stories are now available. The
annual report referenced four individuals with whom we worked during the year.

Their stories are told in the following videos:

Erionna’s story focuses on how we are helping a 6-year-old in physical therapy. Kathleen Brinegar is working with Erionna and her family as she is making progress on sitting, holding her head up, standing and becoming mobile with her gait trainer.

. . . Figuring Things Out
Kayla is an 18-year-old intern at Project SEARCH East who works with Keith Fox in learning the skills she needs to obtain a position in the healthcare industry. The year-long program is assisting Kayla as she figures things out.

. . . Making Her Way
Samantha is a 25-year-old young woman who worked with our Employment Division to get her career going after she had an accident that caused a traumatic brain injury. Sam works at the Benjamin Harrison YMCA is she is truly making her way.

. . . Maintaining Independence
Scott is an individual who worked with Mary Follman in our Driver Evaluation and Training program to assist him with vehicle modifications. Scott was involved in an accident when he was 24 years old that resulted in paralysis from the waist down. Scott’s vehicle modifications are helping him in maintaining independence.
