  • Case Study


    Twelve years ago, Geni began a lifelong partnership with the experts at Ability KC.

    At 5 years old she was bitten by a tick which rapidly and unexpectedly became septic and led to encephalitis, an inflammation in her brain. After graduating from Ability KC’s Pediatric Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation program, she continued to return to services each year for outpatient therapies and specialized summer programming.

  • Case Study


    After having more than 100 seizures each day, Sadie was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder called Rasmussen’s Encephalitis.

    Sadie then began physical, occupational, and speech therapy at Ability KC and developed new goals that include crawling, walking, eating, and communicating. 

  • Case Study


    After suffering from a virus that left her in a coma, Onna came to Ability KC for outpatient medical rehabilitation services in order to relearn to walk, talk and read.

    After progressing and reaching every goal and milestone from therapy, Onna started working with the Ability KC employment services team to help her build skills.
