So we started high school last week. Everything seems to be going well however, the problem we are having at the moment is where to put a backpack. My son just got a power chair over the summer and all the backpacks etc are made to hang on the back of the chair. My son still has complete strength in his upper body and wants to be independent by being able to access all of his books himself. I have put an executive bag that has a flap over the front on the side of his chair but its kind of bulky and I have been experimenting with different velcro and straps to attach it to the arm..It's working but was wondering if anyone else had a better idea?
We ordered a lap tray for his chair to use at school but as soon as I put it on his chair he said, 'I feel like I am sitting in a high chair that I have to carry around all day"...good point! he didn't want special desks like they offered so he is using a computer lap tray from office max that I stuck on the other side with velcro he can take off when he needs it.
This all seems crazy but thats how he wants it. it just seems that there should be a better way!
