October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month

Most parents expect they will hold their children’s hands as they grow. Sometimes, the parents need a hand to hold as well. Huntley is a 2 1/2 year old with Down Syndrome. When he was 2 months old, his mother Malea discovered Goodwill Easterseals’ Early Intervention program and the support their family needed.

With the help of Goodwill Easterseals, Huntley learned to eat with a spoon, sit up steadily, and other skills for his age. At the same time, his parents and 6 year old brother Haden have been taught ways to help Huntley participate in daily activities.

Huntley is on his way to a better preschool experience thanks to Goodwill Easterseals!
