Toddler Wheelchair Lending Program

programs_toddlerAt this time the Toddler Wheelchair Program is not lending out any toddler wheelchairs due to the age and condition of the current chairs.

Toddler-sized wheelchairs are available to lend to families who are in the process of getting their child a wheelchair. A toddler-sized wheelchair is a great way to encourage independence, allow for eye-to-eye peer contact, and build wheelchair skills.
