The Politics of Walking | An Update

Ooooh... which way will I go?
Ooooh… which way will I go?

Today, Carys’s walker was sent home from school with a note saying, “We don’t need this at school any more, we don’t use it.”

In other words, in the week and a half since I took the Walkolong into school, Carys is walking so well in with it, that she doesn’t need the standard issue walker her physiotherapist has insisted on for over six years.

I wonder what the politics of this are

I think you can guess how I’m feeling right now, which is just as well, because I couldn’t express it in words if I tried.

  1. That’s awesome Ali. I’m so glad she doesn’t have to use that walker that seems to have a mind of it’s own. I’m sure Carys loves being able to go where she wants to go. You’re an inspiration to parents who need to advocate for their children.
