    Teen clothing suggestions

    My son has CP, and has both physical and mental disabilities. He is 16 and mentally functions at a 3rd or 4th grade level. He has fine motor issues, vision problems, and uses crutches to get around. We are having trouble finding pants that he is able to get on that stay up and donít show his rear end all the time.

    He needs to be able to get his pants on and off himself in order to toilet at school, and he wants to dress independently (which he can do)! He canít use a belt, snaps, or buttons so he has been wearing sweatpants that hang off his bum. Iíve tried mutiple sizes and styles of elastic band pants with the same issue.

    I am really desperate for a solution, and would love to hear from any other parents with similar problems or suggestions!

    Dear Agf35,

    If you don't sew, perhaps you can find someone to do alterations on some pants that fit his waistline. How about suspenders? Can he move the suspenders off of his shoulders and back on?
