KCTV 5 – Ability KC Helps Young Girl With Rare Disorder Thrive
In 2016 at just three-and-a-half months, Mira became the 36th GNA01 mutation diagnosis worldwide.
The gene mutation severely prohibits Mira’s motor functions. The devastating diagnosis left the first-time parents uncertain of what to do next — until they ended up at Ability KC.
Unlike her motor skills, Mira’s social skills and brain development are more than fine.
Ability KC is the only therapeutic preschool of its kind in the region. Onsite therapists work with kids with disabilities daily. They integrate them into classroom settings with typical children – and children like Mira – side-by-side.
