Anyone out there with a child with spina bifida that is highly functional? I have a son that is 8 years old, he is highly functional. He was delayed on talking and walking. He uses AFO's, but he doesn't have to wear them to aid in walking. He resently was diagnosed with having ADD/ADHD combined for his inability to focuse on classwork. HIs attention span is very short. His legion on his spine was just above his buttocks. The biggest problems we have now are bladder and bowel problems.
