My six year old boy has spastic dipleagia and i took him to his hospital appointment today and he got examined etc. After the examination the doc said he will need a gait analysis just a basic one she said the indepth one takes about 2 hrs so he won t be able to tolerate that one yet. I just really wanted to ask is there anyone who s child has had this done and what does it entail cause as usual my mind went blank when the doc asked did i have any questions. Also i told the doc today that my son still sees a OT but he has nt seen a physio for a long long time so shes gonna investigate why this is. Regarding my buggy question all i wanted to ask is do i phone wheelchair services regarding him getting to big for his buggy . My son can walk but does get tired. Any advice would be great, thanks xx
