Hi, My 3 yr old has a short attention span amongst other problems and in the hospital this week they had ordinary wooden chairs except they have arms on them. The arms were great as abi can't get out of the chair easily after we have pushed it up to the table so her concentration span was great. Has anyone any advice on where to get an affordable one of these please? It doesn't need to be supportive as she wears a plaster cast around her body but reasonably stable. Our OT won't be of any help, she's not what you'd call proactive.

Thanks for reading

have u thought of checking out second hand furniture shops if its a normal dining chair with arms (there is a name for them u usually get 2 when you have a table for 6) or ikea has a great selection of good priced chairs if you near one
There comes a point in your life when you realize:Who matters,Who never did,Who won't anymore...And who always will..
So, don't worry about people from your past,there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Hello 'sueinsummer'

Do you know you can apply for a grant from NEWLIFE for any type of equipment for your child. You will need someone to sign the form i know you said your ot wasnt any good but someone like that ie specialist @ hospital etc. But get in touch with newlife and they will give you a grant towards the cost of a chair for your child.

Another charity is CEREBRA you can find them @

http://www.cerebra.org.uk

Also check out Living Made Easy @

Charitable Funding for Children's Equipment, check this website out and see if they can help you in anyway.

You are VAT Exempt from paying vat on any goods that are for your child on most things, check before you pay.

Let me know if you get the chair for your child.

hi, i have seen chairs that sound like what you are looking for my sons nursery had a little girl that used a FOXDENTEN chair. just typed it in google and really easy to find. have a peek hopefully this will suit. Early years generally provide suitable seating for nursery if the OT will not help out.
I never thought it would happen to me.

Thank you will check out all these options. Newlife have been really good to us and funded a car seat for Abi last year so prob going to look around the second hand shops but I'll check IKEA first.

thanks again,
Sue
