Suzanne: Hi my 16 year old son with autism has had 2 achilles surgeries over in the last 6 months for toe walking issues.He is now in braces and doing really well with them and getting around in general. He is having trouble though navigating up and down stairs. He has a class next semester that is out of his normal building which is on a hill with 3 sets of stairs to get to this building. The school does not want to provide him a bus to get to this class and back ( the class cannot come to him because it is a chorus class ). They want him to walk up and down these the sets of stairs to get where he needs to go. He is barely able to get up one flight of stairs and he has to have a lot of assistance. 3 flights is absurd.
