What are some accommodations for kids in wheelchairs?

Accommodations for Kids in Wheelchairs

If your child needs a pediatric wheelchair, he or she may feel unhappy or different from other kids. They also might feel as if they can't get around as easily, or that they can't do the things they'd like. One way to make your child feel better about their wheelchair is to make some simple accommodations. Make sure that your home is wheelchair friendly, meaning that all doorways are wide enough and all stairways are either replaced or supplemented by ramps. Choosing a chair that allows different amounts of reclining can also be a great accommodation for a wheelchair bound child – that way, they can stay comfortable throughout the day.
