Does anyone have any feedback/experience about disablity challengers?
My 15yr old DS was tragically hit my a car and suffered a hit to the head resulting in him being unconscious for hours. He also has a broken leg that was operated on earlier this morning. He is very upset as he loves to go swimming and run around and he is now unable to walk for 6 weeks+
We live 30 minutes away from the nearest challengers sceme from your house. Would anyone recommend Challengers?
My friend has a DD (now 16) who has ADHD and ADD who used to attend challengers until she was 12 but my friend stopped sending her as a volunteer who was a 15yr old male was 'seeing' her DD more than a child who was part of the role. This puts me of slightly.

Your poor DS, that sounds horrible. But as far as know Challengers is for disabled DC rather than those who are recovering from an injury.

He has Down syndrome/ASD/other special needs too.

In that case it sounds like it would be worth you investigating what they could offer him.
