hi all, Alfie's new physio from school has been out today and she told me about kidz up north event. she said we should go and have a look and just wondering if anyone else has been to this before. Alfie needs a new walker as the one he has is not working for him she also said we should look at getting funding for a disability trycicle for him and if we went we could find out about that and maybe find a walker we think is suitable. So made up with his new physio, she really knows her stuff and actually listened to me. weve had concerns about one of Alfies ankles for as long as i can remember and have been constantly fobed of by all the doctors and last physio but it was the first thing she said today. He's know got to go for a cast of his leg and get a moulded splint, hurah!!!. hopefully this works or she'll send his to an orthoptic surgeon.
were all angels in waiting!!

At last someone that listens hey!!!lol. Glad that you'll get his little ankle looked at now. I have never been but been told that it's really good as you can try out and see what suits and doesn't! Without spending a fortune on trial and error!!! Good luck
Things can be hard on occasions but well worth it!Heart

I went last year and thought it was ok but not overly amazing. i have in previous years been to naidex in birmingham and found this much better but depends where you live.

The Children shows are very highly recomended by many.
As they specialise in Children its a great way to see service providers and possibly discover products which could help with a problem you could have as a family.
They do them in 3 locations.
Children in the south
Children in the middle
and of course Children in the north.

If you have a show local its a worthwhile trip Smile

ah thanks. think we'll go and have a look. Happy to buy alfie trike for xmas or his b'day in january rather than wait for funding but don't want to pay a lot of money for something he hasn't tried or we haven't seen before as not entirely convinced he'll be able to do it as he can't walk but you never know!!
