I wanted to find a clinic that had an aggressive restorative approach as well as an eye toward practical, real-world, problem-solving strategies. After finding Kennedy Krieger online and reading about the mission and vision, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. Kennedy Krieger has changed my life in countless ways. The ability to look after myself and live with the independence I have is because of Kennedy Krieger. Since coming to Kennedy Krieger, I’ve gotten my driver’s license, learned to transfer in and out of my chair, and dress completely independently. Before visiting Kennedy Krieger, I could have never imagined any of those things were possible for me to do on my own. I look forward to every visit because I know I’m coming to a world-class facility with world-class doctors and therapists where the care is second to none.
