Not Just Playing Around

It was a busy day at the CDI office. Several families had come for consultations regarding adaptive equipment for their children with special needs. Some families had travelled several hours for the opportunity and had brought along all their children for the event, not only the ones getting the consultation. When a toddler started racing up and down the office hallway with a walker, Taasir staff assumed a little brother was just playing around. The little boy appeared to be completely neurotypical. However, the child’s parents were delighted by his antics and asked a Taasir staff member if they could purchase a walker for their child. The staff hesitated and finally answered that we only sell our equipment to children with special needs, not just for any children to play with. The mother quickly asserted that this child actually 2 ½ years old and had never walked alone before! So, of course the child got the walker and Taasir made an impact again.
