Located in downtown Wakefield, Easter Seals Rhode Island is the leading non-profit organization in Rhode Island that provides early intervention services for children up to three years of age with disabilities and special needs. The center also helps individuals through age 21 with education and job placement.
Extending beyond its Wakefield home, Easter Seals works with families throughout Washington County and in areas of Kent and Newport Counties. The organization provides help, hope and answers so people with special needs can live more independent lives. This aid comes in many forms, from physical therapy and feeding to developmental evaluations and service coordination. Easter Seals also provides families with support and guidance.
