Even though the children are the same age, it is very likely that there are many differences among them, some examples: body dimensions, postural needs, living situation, schooling situation, transportation needs. If you have in this group children that have come from far away to receive a new wheelchair and one of the available ones is appropriate to the child, that could be one of the prioritization criteria. In the meantime for the children and families that will be placed in the waiting list, you may provide training in 24 hour postural care so the child can be positioned in different manners throughout the day that allow him/her to interact/play/learn while protecting the body from distorsions.

Can you share with the community what factors do you take into consideration to make this decision?
