Meet Skylar and Kai

We love to hear how the families and children we served many years ago are doing today! Skylar and his brother, Kai, received early intervention services at Kids Who Count as infants. Now 12 and 9 years old, these handsome boys enjoy friendships and meeting new people. They are so proud of their accomplishments.

Born with Spina Bifida, paralysis, and hearing loss, Skylar received physical, occupational, and speech therapy through our early intervention program. Today, Skylar can do many things independently, including transferring in and out of his chair all by himself.

Skylar’s younger brother, Kai, was born with a cleft lip and palate which made feeding and speech a challenge from the beginning. Kai received speech and occupational therapy from Kids Who Count before turning three. And, he continues to work hard every day to strengthen his speech and communication.

“Both boys are healthy, capable, and they do well in school,” their mother, Shelly, said. “We were lucky to have Kids Who Count’s help for 6 years! It has made a great difference in our boys’ lives.”
