What We Do
Who We Serve
Ability KC offers pediatric to adolescent medical rehabilitation with education support, including the Mary Shaw Branton Therapeutic Preschool to job skills development and training. Whether, congenital to acquired disabilities, our team works closely with families and caregivers, to support individualized plans and achieving goals within school to work environments.
Adolescent teens and young adults have needs that differ from those of younger children, and Ability KC offers a number of unique services to help them as they accomplish goals, reach key milestones and prepare for adulthood.
A broad range of adult outpatient medical rehabilitation services are available through Ability KC, including traditional outpatient therapy services and our Adult Day Hospital Program. All of our care plans are tailored to the individual’s unique needs and goals and can include intensive day rehab, goal-based group therapies, and interest-based services.
Senior services at Ability KC take a comprehensive approach to support aging adults—helping them remain actively engaged in both their personal and professional lives as well as within their communities.
In May 2018, Micah had been playing outside with his cousins when he was struck by a car and thrown into a yard across the street. Doctors told his mother Shayla to begin preparations to bury her son.
Micah spent two weeks in the hospital on 100 percent life support before being moved out of the ICU and into inpatient rehabilitation. That’s when therapists at Children’s Mercy recommended he come to Ability KC.
In January of 2014, Dottie suffered a ruptured aneurysm with a subarachnoid bleed and was given a 3% chance of survival spending one week in a coma.
At the recommendation of Dottie’s physician, Dr. Brad Steinle, she turned to Ability KC for outpatient medical rehabilitation in Kansas City. As a result of occupational, physical, and speech therapy, she has made tremendous strides.
