Bedroom For Matthew
We moved to a more suitable house this year after our previous house could not be extended to enable my son to have a downstairs bedroom. The new house has plenty of room to create a bedroom and already has a downstairs bathroom. The original OT assessment done last year recommended a downstairs room and the new OT in May recommended the same. She has now changed her mind because my son does not use his wheelchair at school (special needs school) and she has seen him on a bouncy castle and playing with his peers at a special needs playscheme. I want my son to join in and have fun and do as much as he can, but when his legs hurt he cant manage the stairs and he goes up on his bum or I carry him,, but at 10 years old he is getting heavy. He does have a wheelchair that we use every weekend and during the week if we are out were he has to walk alot. His school is small and very flat. Ive got an appointment with my MP in a few weeks and have really got to the stage were I am fed up. I want my son downstairs so he is safe, comfortable and has some independence. Any help/advice would be great.
