> Mobility and Equipment

Mobility; why is it important? How do we support children to develop their skills to gain mobility? How do we find the best equipment to support them grow and develop?

Mobility is a skill and something that every person is entitled to. It does not just include walking, it can include wheelchairs, crawling, rolling, climbing and anyway we move!

Some kids need more help than others to become mobile!

Sometimes it is not just mobility we need help with, it can be a modified knife and fork for eating, handles to keep us safe in the bathroom or switches to help us communicate.

Some more information on Mobility and Equipment is listed below.
