wagon or large stroller?

Posted by bria @bria, Sep 12 3:28pm

We will be bringing our 7 year old autistic son to Rochester Mayo Clinic in a few weeks. I'm hoping to rent a wagon or large stroller to help get him around to the multiple appointments. I know wheelchairs are available but I'm thinking if I can borrow/rent a wagon I can bring his favorite books, sensory tools, and possibly a blanket as a safe little mobile sensory space. Any ideas? Thanks!

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Autism (ASD) group.

@bria, I might start with contacting the Concierge Services at Mayo Clinic.
It's a free service and they answer all sorts of questions regarding your time at Mayo Clinic, like where to get a wagon and activities you can do. See all the ways you can contact them here: https://www.mayoclinic.org/patient-visitor-guide/minnesota/concierge-services

I'm also bringing in @mitzi3 @alexisdewilde and @ihatediabetes into this discussion. I bet they will have more ideas.

Bria, will you be in Rochester for a few days?
