Hi your OT should be able to help with this. If you dont have one your GP will probably be able to refer you for an assesment.

what you really need to deal with is his behaviour and how to keep him under control
i know its not easy with him having asd
i went through exatly same thing where i wanted to keep her in pushchair because it was easier
but i went on a parenting course and help me out loads

what about getting a wrist strap for each other hand may be that could help :-)

Hi, Our OT was unable to supply us one as she did not fit the criteria, but was able to write a covering letter to support our application for Newlife Charity. Our little one has ASD, low tone and Crohn's Disease and the maclare major has been very useful for longer days out. Hope this helps. X
