BENEFITING: National AMBUCS
Micah is a happy little boy who was born with Infantile Autism Disorder. He also has a secondary condition of general Hypotonia which causes low muscle tone and weakness in the muscles. At age 7 yrs., he is developmentally a 2 yr old, due to the severity of his Autism. He is also completely non-verbal.
In his physical therapy sessions, he has learned to ride an AmTryke, which is helping him to become stronger. The AmTryke is the first style of tricycle that Micah has been able to ride. The combination of using both his legs and arms to "pedal" the tricycle gives him the strength needed to manuever the AmTryke. Having an AmTryke of his own would provide Micah with the opportunity to continue the exercise he loves while at home.
