Living With Osteogenesis Imperfecta

The numerous fractures and restricted activity that go along with osteogenesis imperfecta can make living with the condition a challenge. However, most people with this disorder are able to lead productive and successful lives. For example, people with osteogenesis imperfecta can increase their mobility by using scooters, bikes, or wheelchairs.
 
If you are a parent of a child who has this condition, don't be afraid to hire a babysitter to watch your child for limited periods of time. The experience will help your child learn that he or she can function independently without you, and will give you a much-needed break from the demanding role you must play in caring for your child.
