Easter Seals Gifted Miracle Belts
Easter Seals of Southwest Florida has recently received a generous donation of Miracle Belts from an anonymous donor to help assist its clients during therapy sessions. The belts have been proven to help improve body awareness for children with sensory needs including those with autism, ADHD and many other sensory-based disorders. The organization has been utilizing the belts since 2007 when Laurie Battle, OTR/L, was therapy director. Laurie provided feedback about the belts stating; “The Miracle Belt provides a longer sense of deep pressure at the child’s core, which in turn allows for increased attention to fine motor and/or cognitive tasks.” Easter Seals' mission is to provide exceptional services for persons with disabilities and their families across a lifetime by empowering individuals to live their lives to the fullest.
