Another name change for the former Easter Seals office in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on September 2, 2015

The local chapter of Easter Seals is no more. But the actual organization isn’t going anywhere.

As of Tuesday, Easter Seals of La Salle and Bureau Counties became known as Starved Rock Regional Center for Therapy and Child Development. The split from the national organization was made so that all donations stay local.

It’s actually the second name change for the non-profit in the past month. Initially they were going to call themselves Lifesteps but an out-of-state organization had the name and sent a letter hinting at possible legal action.

The center offers preschool, development, speech and physical therapy along with an Autism Resource Center in Ottawa.
