Hi my daughter has hypotonia and poor hand strength and fine motor skills. I am struggling to find any long socks that are easy to put on. She also still has a few accidents so needs to change them herself school. The school won't help her so she can take 40 minutes to do this so she missing class. I have gone back to short socks as school are complaining but I feel awful as it gets towards winter.
Any suggestions for easy stretch socks that will stay up??
Thanks,
Sunnyd

I think just stick with the short socks, most children run around with their long socks bagged around their ankles so just go with what is easiest for your daughter- does her school allow boots so her leg can be warmer?

After googling:

Maybe the silicon would help her to grip the top of the socks? Although they are maybe too long being over the knee
