Experiencing the joy and unconditional love that is Kenzie is one of the world’s great gifts to offer. She can find a friend in any room and knows who needs a hug the most. Kenzie is a three-year-old girl full of sass, spirit and who also happens to have Down Syndrome. Kenzie is meeting her milestones with Easterseals by her side every step of the way.
“Kenzie is having so much success now because of all the hard work from the therapists at Easterseals." Kenzie's mom, Tara,says "We know that is the reason she is exceeding every expectation.”
Kenzie started receiving physical therapy services with Easterseals when she was eight months old to help with low muscle tone. Since then, both occupational and speech therapies have helped with fine motor skills and with things like using a sippy cup and with feeding skills. Recently, Kenzie transitioned into preschool successfully with the help of Easterseals. She is also involved in a list of activities, including soccer, music, and horseback riding.
“The therapists set goals and work very hard to help her meet them to ensure she can progress and live up to her full potential and ability,” Kenzie’s dad, Ryan, says. “Without therapy, she would not be where she is...I can't put into words how proud we are of her.”
