Easter Seal’s Autism Services in Missouri
Easter Seals in Columbia, formerly Touchpoint and Life Skills, was founded in 1970 and its first program had an enrollment of 17 children. Today, on an average week, they directly touche the lives of literally hundreds of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). And because no one is prepared to be the parent of a child with autism, we also work with families, helping them learn the special skills they will need each and every day.
