My daughter is 5 years old and has mild cerebral palsy/right hemipheresis. She wears a hand brace and a AFO. I've noticed she's been self conscious and to me she doesn't want to wear her braces anymore. She doesn't like when kids ask her what's wrong with her. I told her she needs these braces for support and balance. I try to encourage her and her teacher is great. I'm not sure what else I can say or do to help build her self esteem. Any ideas?
