Things to help my son

Tripletmom Member Posts: 37
Hi all,

I have been doing alot of research into all the things i can get to help my son, he is 14 months with 4 limb spastic quad and his is a triplet:)

You might already know most of this if so, please ignore. I have asked by PT before buying or applying for the following. So please ask yours as all CP Babies have diffrent needs.

1. A gym ball from the website PHYSIOSUPPLIES, its good for sensory and tummy time.

2. Funding from NEW LIFE for a car seat from JCM SEATING. JCM will come out and access your child.

3. Funding from FAMILY FUND to fund my sons swimming lessons.

4., i have done a family whip round to buy a early activity system. great for tummy time,side lying etc... the website has different chairs, prams and equipment to help very expensive but ask your OT and PT if they know of anyway you can get funding? worth a try.

5. and and the sensory company are use full websites too.

Hope this helps
