    Did he ever fall down the stairs? Are they difficult to see so that he is unsure of his footing? Are the stairs slippery. Is he okay going down the stairs?

    One of ours has fallen down the stairs a few times (trying to race down the stairs and slipping on the hardwood) and is now fairly nervous with stairs. Especially if not all the lights in the staircase are on. We have added rubber mats to our stairs and we are making sure that all lights are on whenever she would be going up or down. That has helped a lot.
