|Adaptive Stroller--too close to a regular stroller!|
She tried to be impartial, but I could tell she agreed that it was very similar to our stroller, with the difference that it can be tilted back in a recumbent position. The pediatric wheelchair looked inviting. Evie thought so too, because when I put her inside the wheelchair, she crossed her legs and continued watching her iPad. Her BFF Naomi thought this was amazing, and toddled around to the back and started pushing Evie down the hallway. I could tell that this was the start of amazing walks to the park, with Evie possibly learning to turn the wheels herself and feel more independent.
I am blogging about this because I want other parents of kids with DS to be aware of the Equipment Clinic. A kid shouldn't have to turn 3, go to preschool, and THEN hear about the possibility of equipment that could help them to participate, and waste 3 months waiting for an appointment and another 3 months for the equipment delivery. We will receive ours just in time, so that Evie can go right into regular classroom activities.
