My little boy is 3 and a half and cannot walk far at all because he has dystonia, we use a buggy as he is quite small but i dont know what to do when he is too big for it. Does anyone know where to get a small wheelchair from or how i go about getting one?

do you have a special needs buggy? if so contact wheelchair services and they will reassess him, if not, talk to your physio and ask for a referal. they will then help find something suitable.

As above have you considered a special needs buggy?
Maybe something like a Maclaren major?

You will most likely need to go through wheelchair services and get your GP to complete a form to set the wheels in motion.
