Meet Your March Birthday Buddy
AJ, Age 6

It may not be October, but AJ will celebrate his 6th birthday this month with a Halloween-themed birthday party!

Birthday parties and other social events are a great chance to show of the skills he's developed in occupational and speech therapy at Easterseals DuPage & Fox Valley. Each week he works on socialization, self-regulation, sensory processing and functional living skills that he can apply at home, at school and at birthday parties!

This year, AJ is excited to learn and socialize with others as part of an exclusive robotics course at Northwestern University.

AJ's mom describes him as a precocious, funny, energetic, charming, loving, selfless and sociable little boy. He's a yellow belt in Tae Kwon Do who loves playing outside with friends, trampolining, and eating grilled cheese sandwiches.

This March, give yourself one more reason to celebrate your birthday! Help children like AJ achieve their goals.  Make a donation to show support for your birthday buddy and help us reach our $6,500 fundraising goal - enough to cover a weekly therapy session for an entire year.*

Whether you're turning 18 or 80, no gift is too small.
Here are some fun ways to turn your birthday into a celebration for a child at Easterseals DuPage & Fox Valley:

  • Donate your age
