Dwarfism Fact # 7:

Little people face many challenges in life. Driving is one of those challenges. When I turned 16 years old I took driving classes through vocational rehab, who also helped me decide If pedal extensions or hand controls would be better. After taking a quick drive around the parking lot using hand controls I decided pedal extensions were better for me. I took months of driving classes and vocational rehab helped me get my car equipped with the right equipment and then I was ready to drive! For me to drive I use pedal extensions, a child’s booster seat with pillows (to help me see over the wheel) and I had to get special permission to have the airbag turned off.
