Where Will Kyla Travel to Next?

8-year-old Kyla is your typical kid in many ways. She loves to be silly, go on trips with her family, and play with her friends! Due to a brain injury at birth, Kyla has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair to get around. However, that doesn’t stop her from having fun. Her adaptive equipment, including an accessible van, allows Kyla to take exciting trips with her family. So far, she has seen the sites in places like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Tennessee!

Kyla’s family knows how important it is to make sure she experiences life to the fullest. Her routine involves a lot of doctor’s appointments, therapy, and hard work, so her family takes her on adventures to new places whenever they can.

“It’s not always easy to travel with a child with a disability, and sometimes requires some creative planning, but she deserves to be with everyone and have an adventure!”

Kyla’s family says they are thankful for the equipment she uses that allows her to “be there” with her family on fun adventures. In addition to her adaptive van, she uses an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device to communicate with her loved ones. She also has a G-tube to help with her food and medicine.

According to her family, “Even though she has some differences, Kyla knows she is also just like everyone else! She loves to be included and be there with everyone! Kyla’s equipment has allowed her to do this.”
