Child at Psychologist


Welcome to Ability Network!

The following documents in this login section should help Providers and Therapists for Children with Special Needs get you started and answer most of your questions while you are providing contract services through our agency. Most documents pertain to children who are receiving services through Missouri First Steps. If you are providing services with us through a different entity, such as an SB 40 Board, Department of Mental Health, or a school district, please let us know if you have any questions. These documents are either exact guidance from Missouri First Steps or a summary of their guidance. 

Caring Child

If you have questions at any time, feel free to call our office 573-883-8181. We consider questions good so call as often as you need to! Our office hours are Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and by email on Fridays.  If you have to leave a message, please be sure to leave your first and last name as we have over 350 providers, and we talk to almost 100 service coordinators.


If we have not had a chance to meet yet, I look forward to doing so in the near future.


Samantha Kertz, President


Caring Child

Leslie, thank you so much for these sweet and encouraging words. I’m sentimental by nature so your email landed in my journal so I can be encouraged by your words when I’m feeling down. Thank you so much for loving the children and their families. You are truly a treasure!

Mother and a Child

The way you supported and empowered me, while giving me feedback and suggestions and direction, was unreal. I look up to and learn a LOT from your style of direct, firm boundaries and passion. I want to show up for this company and honor what you've built and continue to and providers! I am so blessed to have you in my life!

Child Playing

I am so grateful for each and every day that I have the opportunity to work with such a great, supportive, thoughtful group of people. Ability Network has been such a blessing and I'm so grateful for each of you!
