Sorry, I didn't realize she couldn't swim when I replied.
I guess there's a lot that could be said about swimming. Some disabled people who can't swim do kayak---most likely with an instructor alongside. If you're wearing a PFD you're bouyant, but swimming strokes are still useful/necessary.
I regret any appearance of encouraging the OP to kayak alone. I would now encourage her to learn to swim before kayaking at all, even with others. A kayaker who can't swim endangers others who may have to come to her rescue.
