Easterseals is proud to introduce a NEW resource for local families in our Pediatric Navigator, Terriyon Kendrick, MSW. Through a partnership with the Early Learning Coalition, the lead agency for a County of Volusia CFAB grant for Family Supports and Services, Easterseals Pediatric Navigator provides Case Management services for children ages 1-22 years of age with a complex mental, emotional, developmental and behavioral disability. Pediatric Navigators assist patients and their family with identifying services for these disabilities.
Terriyon is excited about his new role and career at Easterseals along with the opportunity of building relationships and helping families identify their strengths. He mentioned his excitement in "..the interaction with families and the patients. I love helping people in general but I get satisfaction out of supporting at risk patients and families that need assistance. I love the feeling of being there for our families and their smiles after help is provided."
"An advantage I see" says Terriyon, "is building relationships. Being a part of this team-focused environment, I knowthe families I serve will get the help and services they need .
"Terriyon worked for Easterseals when he was interning in college, and understands how important help from our community partners is to identify clients who may otherwise fall through the cracks, "I believe people don’t understand all that I can do and provide for them. I not only connect families with service providers, I also do the research to ensure our families receive all of the supportive services available.
"Terriyon encourages families to reach out to him, "I’d like to be known for being a strong advocate for children and families who feel helpless. I’d like to also be known for caring for children and families for who they are, being limitless with the help I provide, and building lasting relationships with all of my clients."
