Children with Cerebral Palsy may have mobility challenges that causes them to use orthotics, gaits, etc. They may even need medications or surgeries. AFOs (Ankle-Foot Orthotics) may be one of the solutions to help with mobility challenges. You can read about orthotic devices by clicking here. Does your child wear AFOs? What kind do they have? What are the challenges? Does your child like them? What do you do to help your child adjust to wearing them? What type of shoes do you suggest for children wearing AFOs (we know it can be a challenge fitting them into shoes)? Finally, what general advice do you have for parents on AFOs?
