Lucas’ Family Story as written by his mother, Amanda.
Lucas was diagnosed with Autism aged 4, he is non verbal so cannot communicate and has no sense of danger. Lucas not only needs a five point harness in his wheelchair but for his safety he needs one in the car too as he doesn’t fit in a normal car seat and these are dangerous as he can climb out while I’m driving.
Yorkshire Children’s Trust helped us to obtain a large, specialist car seat with a 5-point harness. It has completely changed our lives, we are no longer restricted or confined to the house. We are able to travel distances and I know that Lucas is secure and for that I cannot thank Yorkshire Children’s Trust enough.
