Just trying to get some opinions about moving a 5 year old child with spastic diplegia (quadraplegic) into a home with stairs - with her bedroom being upstairs. She can walk with braces, without a walker, but is very unsteady and unable to "catch" herself if she starts to fall. She is very active mentally and alert otherwise. My ex-daughter-in-law has just moved my granddaughter into this situation and we are devastated at the thought that she could be in danger. Am I being too over-protective? I know her therapist uses a small staircase during session, but she is not left unattended. I'm afraid in a home environment that she could be in danger, as we are not watching every single minute. I'd really appreciate some thoughts. Thanks.....Val
