A child with limb loss (both accidental or congenital) is much different than an adult; so is the way we approach and counsel the family and patient. We want to make sure we do everything possible to eliminate any perception of disability from your child and focus on all of the can do’s... We start to fit children at the time they learn to sit. They will adapt to the use of a prosthetic much better than their older counterparts! They do not know the word “disabled” and they always overcome any disability associated with limb loss. At Level Four, the practitioners understand that children need to be met where they are—and that communication with them is not the same as it is with adults. Some of the practitioners at Level Four have decades of experience working with children who’ve experienced limb loss. They know how to approach you and your child in a manner that’s caring, comforting and effective for your child.
