Strollers for the Older Autistic Child Revisited

Unfortunately our experience with the Special Tomato EIO stroller did not work out as we had hoped. The hood has broken, the stroller is dirty, it's very hard to fold/transport, and the biggest issue is that simply cannot seem to keep the harness tightened, therefore Dovi climbs out of the stroller instantly. It's a disaster. For now, we're back to the old trust Mclaren Techno XT, which at least is keeping him contained, but he is way too big for it and his legs reach the floor. We are now in the process of working with a Medicaid Equipment provider to get us a Mclaren Major Elite. It doesnt look wheelchairish, will fit him right, and is easy to fold. Hopefully I can get the scrip from the pediatrician asap an they can get to working with Medicaid o cover it. I will keep you posted...


  1. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. What an aggravation, especially after all that money you spent on it.

  2. what about the good old mountain buggy? are those too small for him? i once read somewhere where someone got the mountain buggy +one, and they managed to open up the first seat so that the kid sat all the way towards the back where the second seat is and had tons of leg room, an older kid. have you ever thought to look into that?

    1. Yes, I measured it and tried it and Dovi doesnt fit in it anymore.

  3. Sorry to hear that the Eio Stroller didn't work out for you, I work with a Six year old Autistic boy who also has the same problem with that stroller, his mother is currently weighting to get the Alvema pixi stroller through Medicaid. You can get your money back for the stroller by selling it on eBay.

  4. My only complaint is that I did not realize that these diaperss did not have the stretch in the waist. Otherwise, exactly what it says it is! Plus, free delivery. I was very happy.
