Special Easter egg hunt caters to all

It was perfect weather for an Easter egg hunt on Saturday. 

This one was extra special because it was made to cater to all children, no matter what challenges they may face.

Hunting for eggs; it's a first for four-year-old Izabella Amory.

She has a metabolic disorder so she doesn't get the chance to participate in every activity. 

Her parents' biggest fear when it came to an Easter egg hunt was that she might get pushed or over-run, but not anymore. 

"I think it's an awesome thing, that we get to be invited to a special event like this and that they have events like this. Especially with her disability, you know we're very limited to where we can go with a lot of other children and stuff," says Yolanda Amory.

This is the 3rd annual "Play for all Egg Hunt" which caters to children with special needs and their families. 

An effort put on by the Pediatric Rehabilitation Team at Seton Medical Center Williamson and Round Rock Parks and Recreation. 

Something they get just as much joy out of.

"It's just a wonderful example. Seeing all the kids and their families, and their faces of how happy they are coming out and just enjoying this wonderful day," says Drew Summers, Seton Rehab Manager.

The idea came about after a patient's mother told therapists at Seton that her son could  not participate in regular hunts. 

Now other children are also reaping the benefits. 

"My favorite part of Easter, is that I saw the eggs and special treats."

"I got a golden egg."

Eggs were hidden at just the right spots, that way they would be accessible to all children.

"They need all that encouragement to keep on going," says Amory.
