Sadie began having seizures at just three years old. She was diagnosed with Epilepsy and prescribed medication. However, she continued to have seizures. She was having more than 100 seizures each day within two months. Then Sadie was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder. She has Rasmussen’s Encephalitis. Next, Sadie had multiple surgeries at Cleveland Clinic.
Because of this, Sadie and her family returned home to start at Ability KC. She began physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Sadie’s family and therapists focused on new goals. This included crawling, walking, eating, and communicating. Now Sadie returns to Ability KC for therapy services over the summer. Her goals now include functional life skills and becoming more independent.
