Yes You Can: Building Independence with Spina Bifida
Ciarlo: It's great to walk with crutches.
And I can't go sideways with my walker but I can go sideways with my crutches.
Make sure they're against the wall or else you'll fall and hit your head.
Mom: I didn't think of that.
Ciarlo: It's awesome. Bye!
Dad: You're on fire, dude.
Ciarlo: You're on fifteen, by the way.
