Children with hemiplegia or hemiparesis may have challenges with dressing when using one hand. Many find their own system of getting dressed, but sometimes they may need a little help along the way. Below you’ll find creative ideas for adapting clothing for a child or adult who has hemiplegia. Many thanks to parents and individuals with hemiplegia who have shared these ideas with us!
