2. Talk to other parents about their experiences. Ask what they like or don’t like about a specific piece of equipment.

3. Choose options that grow/adapt with your child. Insurance typically won’t cover another chair for 5 years. 

4. Focus on equipment that your child can use independently.

5. Order a tray! They are perfect for play, and when a table is too tall for your child’s small wheelchair.
