Help needed about the impact of wheelchairs for teenagers and if they are a necessity or not.
I work for social care and I am currently assessing a teenager to see if she can access the funding for a wheelchair. I wanted to know if any of you have experience or a view on what impact having a wheelchair might have on a teenagers life. I am looking to see if this is somethings she wants or if indeed it is something she needs. Any views shared would be much appreciated and help me gain a good understanding to inform her assessment.
