Cynical readers might be saying; you don’t say. But here is the thing. Are they aware of the shortfall facing these special kids these days? Because if they were well aware of how difficult it has been up to recently for adults to acquire custom designed wheelchairs for specific needs, they might just appreciate the needs of those special children. Here we are not even referring to children who are of an age where they should be finishing off at junior school and preparing their way for high school.
Such is the plight for a majority of special needs children that because they are not able to manage conventional day to day educational activities at school they are often set back another year. Misunderstanding school principals feel that it is in the best interests of the child to repeat the year all over again. Concerned parents that have such children have often borne the brunt of their children’s special needs.
In days gone by resources to do with catering for the specific needs of special needs children were always at a premium. Bright and talented and highly intelligent children, who are physically disabled in some way or another, fortunately no longer have to be set back in life. Because today it is possible for their parents to oil the wheels of their new chairs by simply contracting the services of skilled and dedicated technicians with years of experience behind them to design, manufacture and prepare customized wheelchairs for kids.
That is putting it so mildly, and do forgive the excitement expressed by this prospect. Because no deserving kid with the brightest brains on the block should be set back in life purely because he or she was born with a disability that requires him or her to have the use of a wheelchair.
