  1. Hi,
    I was wondering if you know of a company that makes pants and shorts with leather like padding on the bottom when then are scooting. This is for children with Joubert Syndrome and will be doing this for quite a length of time. Some that is really needed to allow them to feel they can get around like other children and do certain activities.
