Hello and welcome. My name is Kaitlyn Anne and I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1. Children born with SMA 1 gradually lose strength in their nervous systems and die, usually by the age of two. There is no known cure or long-term treatment. SMA not only affects the muscles that help me move, but it also affects those that allow me to breathe, swallow and clear my airway.

Sling Play with Serial Casts
Kaitlyn with her first set of serial casts. They aren't holding her back! She's still enjoying her slings, watching Dora, playing with switch operated toys and interacting with her brothers!
