Nethilia - Who Really Doesn't Exist

Age at first wheelchair/diseases?

I love this community. Most of the questions I ask are for my long running series or novels, so I don't really have web links for them, but I appreciate it (and keep all my threads in my memories for reference).

Questions of the day:

1: What's a disease or birth defect that, while not affecting mental capacity in any way, can mean a person cannot walk from birth? The character I'm working with is averagely smart for her age, so I don't want to use a disease that makes her educationally disabled as well.

2: On this same character: How old is a disabled child when they first get a wheelchair? I'm thinking probably before they would start formal schooling, but not before they could normally walk. Can I get an age range here? Also, how would a parent move them around (past the little baby in a stroller stage) if they didn't have a wheelchair?
