Hello. I am new here, but I wish I knew about it much earlier!!
My son is almost 4 and he has Spastic Diplegia CP. He uses reverse walker to walk, but only for short distance. So we have been using stroller or carry him for longer distance. He is still smaller for his age about 30lb and just fine in the stroller weight wise. However, he is not comfortable in stroller for long period. We are going to see specialist in wheelchair clinic soon to see what options he may have. My thought is some kind of wheelchair as my son associates stroller as baby (he has a little sister).
Can anybody suggest good wheelchair or stroller by name so that I know what may be available for him?? Wheelchair clinic we are going to is NOT only for pediatric, so I am a little nervous that we don't get variety of options for him. We can go to pediatric hospital a little over an hour away if we feel necessary. So please help me get prepared what is available out there so we know if we should go see pediatric specialist or not at our appointment.
