Patient Stories

  • Sam's Story

    Meet Sam, a 10-year-old patient with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Sam has been a patient of Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Center for Autism and Related Disorders for the past four years. Last summer, his Kennedy Krieger care team diagnosed him with epilepsy, a not uncommon diagnosis for children with ASD. Since starting on epilepsy medication, "It’s like the world opened up for him, his mother, Bethel, says. “He was finally able to understand us and express himself... He just became a part of the world."

  • Penny's Story

    Meet Penny, a 3-year-old patient with cerebral palsy. After having hip surgery on December of 2020, Penny came to Kennedy Krieger for an inpatient therapy stay and today continues her therapy through Kennedy Krieger's outpatient therapy. When Penny first came to Kennedy Krieger, she had to use her walker to stand. With help from her therapists at Kennedy Krieger, and the use of the PediaCORE system, Penny can now stand on her own with her therapist holding her at her side. Penny has made incredible and life-changing progress that has got her moving again.

  • Nolan's Story

    Meet Nolan, a Kennedy Krieger patient with cerebral palsy. Following a difficulty at birth, Nolan developed a brain bleed that affects one half of his body. The muscles on one side of Nolan's body are tighter than the other, making walking and standing difficult. When coming to Kennedy Krieger, Nolan was enrolled in the Specialized Treatment Program. Using the PediaCORE system has allowed Nolan to reach and stretch in ways he hasn't before, and strengthen his muscles. Kennedy Krieger has provided Nolan and his family with a stepping stone to a brighter future.

  • Julia's Story

    Meet Julia. After obtaining a blood clot on her spinal cord, 4-year-old Julia came to Kennedy Krieger Institute from Canada for treatment. It was within the walls of therapy where she met 24 year-old Kristen McAllister, a Transverse Myelitis patient from Tennessee. Kristen explains the unlikely bond that formed between the two, and how Julia has inspired her to never give up hope.
