Don't eliminate funding for early intervention services
Dear [Decision Maker],
The Super Committee is faced with the difficult task of cutting more spending from the federal budget. As a supporter of Easter Seals, I want you to know how important federal funding is to millions of children and families living with disabilities. This funding provides diagnosis and treatment for young children with disabilities. Without proper treatment, these kids may never catch up in school and succeed in life. In addition, early intervention makes good fiscal sense. Getting children the support they need now will help avoid more costly interventions later. All kids deserve to achieve their dreams. I urge you to tell your colleagues on the Super Committee not to eliminate funding for these life-changing programs -- help that can be as simple as a pair of glasses so a little girl can see the blackboard, or screening for a 3-year-old boy who shows signs of autism.
Thank you,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
