Did you know Easter Seals Greater Houston provides early intervention services (ECI) through our Infant Development Program in Montgomery and Liberty Counties – in addition to Harris and Fort Bend. We are very excited to be providing services there and have two incredible teams of therapists and social workers devoted to the counties. This past April, Walk With Me 2014 brought families as far away as Liberty County! Several of the families enrolled in our Early Childhood Intervention program made the trek from Liberty County to walk in support of this amazing event. Joining the Liberty County staff in the Walk was 11 month old Kambreia Sonnier who was born with hydrocephalus. She receives Physical and Occupational therapy through our infant program and is currently crawling, pulling to stand and cruising around her home! She enjoyed walking holding her Mom’s hand to see the lions and tigers and bears! Joining Kambreia and her Mom at the zoo was her Grandmother and siblings. Another one of our Liberty County families joining in on the Walk was the Sample-Williamson Family. Eli, who is 2 years old now was born at 28 weeks weighing only 2 pounds 14 ounces! He is receiving Physical,Occupational and Speech therapy and we are happy to report he was able to enjoy walking around part of the zoo using his posterior walker. Joining Eli was his Mother, Grandparents and Uncle making it a true family outing! They enjoyed meeting the families and employees from the Houston area as well as face painting, breakfast yummy enough to satisfy a bear and other fun activities! For the Liberty County staff it was a special experience to walk with our clients and their families and together make a difference in the lives of those in need! We all look forward to Walk With Me 2015!!
