My Son is 11, and autistic. We’ve always used DAS(or GAC) and we’ve always used the stroller as a wheelchair option since it provides him a good place to decompress and not get claustrophobic. But now that he’s 11, he’s really too big for an actual stroller. I have a small wheelchair I’ve thought about bringing. But I’m torn between thinking it will be a hassle at the times when he wants to walk, but I’m afraid of not having it if he needs to sit and decompress. And I know I could rent one there if it becomes necessary, but that adds up. We are driving, so flying with it isn’t an issue. How do other people deal with that too big for a stroller age?
