Who is eligible?
- Children, youth and young adults up to the age of 19 years who are registered with Easter Seals Ontario

What is funded?
Easter Seals’ Financial Assistance Program picks up where the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s Assistive Devices Program (ADP), insurance and other family resources leave off. Many ADP items are only partially funded. Easter Seals helps make up the balance to a set limit. Other items not funded by ADP may be funded. Examples of items funded include, wheelchairs, ramps, porch and van lifts, and bathing and toileting equipment.
