Don't Let Millions of Children Fall Behind: Support Early Childhood Special Needs Intervention

    1. Sponsored by

      Easter Seals

Every year, our nation fails to identify more than one million children under the age of five with a disability or at risk of a developmental delay. And according to a new Easter Seals 50-state report, we aren’t doing enough to keep children from falling through the cracks.

Kids who start school behind their peers may never catch up. We can give every child an equal opportunity to learn and grow, but we need to get kids the help they need in the critical years before they turn five.

If you believe all kids deserve a chance to learn, build lifelong skills, and live up to their full potential, your elected officials need to hear from you today!
