My son is autistic and cannot ride a bike or a skate board or even go roller skating. His pediatrician has prescribed a special recumbent bicycle, which will allow him to finally ride independently! This type of bike is very expensive, but it would carry him into adulthood and he can go riding anywhere a regular bike could! Biking is very important for his neurological development. He is very capable in so many ways, and he yearns to finally be able to ride a bike.
