Small adaptations can sometimes make a huge difference. Here's a great tip from the mother of a teen with Down syndrome. Thanks Anne-Maree:
My son has trouble tying his shoelaces and I wanted to share a solution we found today. From Athletes Foot, Performance Laces, that use a toggle to tighten the shoelace. They are designed for triathletes so they can get shoes on and off quickly.
But for my young athlete one more level of independence and a way to get him to wear joggers without velcro, that we can no longer get in his size. He can squeeze and use the toggles easily. Thought I should share as I am sure other people must have this issue too.
