Mobility describes the way a person moves or gets around. A child with mobility challenges may use mobility aids such as crutches, ankle or leg supports, a walking frame, or a wheelchair.
Some kids may have a physical disability that impacts their mobility, such as kids with spinal cord injury who use a wheelchair. Some kids may have developmental or neurological disorders, such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury (e.g. following a stroke), or spina bifida, which can affect their mobility.
Kids may move in different ways and use aids (e.g. crutches, frames, wheelchairs) to help them move on the footy field.
