special needs strollers
by Christine Joseph-Davies
Where in Ontario can I purchase a special needs stroller under $500? It seems they are all imports and cost over a thousand dollars! Are any of these strollers covered by anything?
I have a 45 lb autistic boy, 6 years old high flight risk. I need a stroller, we have been doing serial casting for 2 years and he wears AFO"S. I have disintegrating disc' in my back and cannot carry him.
Is there any funding available for all these things we NEED for our special needs children? His physio also suggests a double board scooter with handle bars...I cannot even locate this let alone imagine the price. Brandon (who is actually my step-grandson who I have been raising since he was 3 months old) is non verbal and does not understand the danger of running into the road, I must be holding him all the time, and he has no fear!!
We do receive ACSD...that being said everyone knows this is peanuts compared to our needs. anyway sorry to go on and on any help or point in the right direction greatly appreciated.
