Four presentations at the 34th Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) in October 2018 found a 25% increase in identified cases of MS, as well as an increase in the diagnosis of MS in children as young as 5, using the new Criteria.
Groups within our Day Habilitation program volunteered for the third year in a row to support the Cedar Falls Schools Foundation.
As 2018 draws to a close, we at Exceptional Persons, Inc. (EPI) are taking time to reflect on all we have been able to accomplish this year along with the help of our great community. We have been blessed by so many who faithfully give and allow us to serve those who are in need.
To fulfill someone's holiday wish may not seem like much sometimes, but for someone who may not otherwise receive a gift, it's everything. That single gift lets them know that someone in the community is thinking about them. And honestly, is there any better feeling than giving the exact gift on someone's list and making their day?
Hawkeye Community College and Exceptional Persons, Inc. are partnering to create an innovative solution to the critical need for child care in Black Hawk County.
Chris Sparks Receives ANCOR's Suellen Galbraith Award for Excellence in Public Policity
Direct Support Professionals do the real work in organizations that provide community services. They help people acquire needed skills to live successfully, get jobs, develop social networks, and explore interests that turn into activities that lead to true participation and inclusion. DSPs are often the cultural guides that help people with IDD navigate their communities and find their places in them.
We would like to proudly congratulate Shannon Henson on becoming EPI's fourth DSP to receive this outstanding award!
For some it may seem completely normal to leave the house, but for John, leaving and being social, has not come naturally.
Spring is in the air and, if you're anything like me, that means it's time clean out the closets and other areas of the house to get rid of the things we don't need! It feels so good to fill bags of items we no longer have a need for, and it feels even better to donate them to benefit people in need. That's where EPI comes in!
We provided education on Autism, specifically, what it means, what to expect, and most importantly, how to appropriately interact.
When the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is made, we are relieved, knowing something can be done, but with the disease comes uncertainty. It not only affects our bodies, it can change everything, setting the stage for “ambiguous loss”, our loss is “unclear, indefinite, vague”, and it cannot be resolved or cured.
Want to stay up-to-date with what's going on at EPI? We make it easy.
