Family Support

Family Support is a broad based category that serves children and adults, ages 3 and up,easter-seals-logo who have intellectual/development disabilities and autism. The goal of family support is to keep families together, until the individual with a disability chooses to live independently. Family support is designed to improve the quality of supports to families, while minimizing the need and cost of out of home placements. This program also allows families to participate in recreational and social activities, and most importantly to make a positive difference in the life of the person with a disability. The services available through family support are as follows:

Dental Services
Specialized clothing
Recreation/ Leisure Activities (THE MIRACLE LEAGUE OF VALDOSTA QUALIFIES)
Environmental Modifications
Parent/ Family Training
Specialized Nutrition
Transportation
Incontience Supplies (diapers, pull-ups, bed pads)
Easter Seals Southern Georgia cannot pay for any services covered by Medicaid, Medicare or Private Insurance.
