Goal Reached 31/05/2018
Adam is non-verbal, 12 year old boy with Autism. It is really difficult to keep him motivated and occupied when he is not at school.
Adam seeks movement and is motivated by movement based activities: those are seen to promote self-regulation and functional gross motor skills.
An adapted bike will support gross motor coordination (pedaling, steering, motor planning, getting on/off, spatial awareness of navigation) as well as provide movement input. Riding an adapted bike is an age appropriate activity that can also help Adam to learn community safety while increasing his activity level. It will also facilitate social inclusion, interaction (greeting, requesting).
And most of all he enjoys riding it and keeps him occupied for long period of time and physically active!
