8INTERNATIONAL OUTREACHFamilies around the world are inquiring about Heartspring services. In the past six months, the Pediatric Services outpatient clinic worked with two families from Nigeria. After struggling to find services at home, Khalid (right) and his family came to Heartspring for three weeks of intensive evaluation and therapy. He has cerebral palsy, and with the help of other local organizations like the Cerebral Palsy Research Foundation (CPRF), Khalid received his very first wheel chair during his stay. His family hopes to move to Wichita at the start of the school year, so Khalid can continue to receive the treatment he deserves. <<GREATER IMPACT<<HEARING CENTERThe Heartspring Hearing Center serves children and young adults ages birth through 21.
