Parenting Kids who Use Wheelchairs

All parents struggle to make the best decisions for their children. When our children don't develop typically and we have concerns about how they will move around, we need good information and people who can listen and see the specific issues in our child's situation. You may find other helpful resources on K-12 education in WheelchairNet's section on education.
