Val was born at 23 weeks and 5 days gestation and spent 120 days in the NICU. As a result, she struggled throughout her life with what she calls “invisible disabilities.” Today, Val is a dynamic college student who majors in music and has presented on Tedx Youth Talks about her journey. Listen to Kennedy Krieger pediatric neurologist Dr. Joanna Burton as she shares Val’s remarkable story.

Produced by Kennedy Krieger Institute in partnership with WYPR.
