Next, we will have to get a seat made for people with special needs. Anything made especially for people with special needs is wildly expensive.

接下来,我们得去获得一个由特殊要求的人做的座椅,由他们做的东西都贵到离谱。

I have no idea whether that’s because insurance sometimes covers such things or because the production volume is low, but the next car seat we’re looking at is close to $1,000.

我不知所措,不管是因为保险有时候包含这些东西,或是因为产量很低,但我们在看的下一个汽车安全座椅接近$1000。

 And then there is a turtle pillow with weighted blanket that costs $342.99 (25% off the list price!).

再有就是一个价值$342.99的乌龟枕头加毛毯套餐(25%的折扣)

He is now able to climb out of a regular crib, largely in virtue of his height. But he would fall out of a regular bed. A bed for people with special needs—essentially a large crib—can cost about $10,000.

他现在能够爬出普通的婴儿床,主要是凭借他的身高。但他会从床上掉下来,一张给特殊需求人群使用的床——本质上是一张大婴儿床——可以花费大约$1W。

These costs go on and on.

这样的花费没完没了的。

Child care is probably the costliest part of having a severely disabled child.

儿童保健可能是一个严重残疾儿童花费最多的部分。

If you have a 4-year-old who can’t walk and is fed through a feeding tube, you can’t just hire the local teenager for childcare and pop out for a night at the movies.

如果你有一个4岁大的孩子,他不会说话,要依靠进食管,你不能只是聘请当地的青少年儿童保育和留出时间看一晚上的电影。

You can’t join the local babysitting co-op. You have to pay a hefty premium for someone qualified and willing to take on the challenge of taking care of your kid.

你不能参加当地的保姆合作社。你必须支付高额的保费给有资格且愿意接受挑战去照顾你的孩子的人。

When we consider doing something active with our two typical kids—a hike, a bike ride, camping—we have to hire someone to care for Edmund, and $25 an hour is a minimum where we live.

当我们考虑为我们两个正常的孩子做一些活动——徒步旅行,骑自行车,露营——我们必须雇用人去照顾埃德蒙,在我们住的地方至少每小时25$。
