Ryan is a severally autistic non-verbal nine year old boy. He seeks out movement. He is unable to ride a bike on his own. He however would be able to ride on a bike with someone else assisting. Ryan has no regard for his own personal safety. He needs to be directly supervised at all times. This bike would allow for direct supervision while providing his need for movement. His interests are very limited, and this bike would be a welcomed addition to a small number of activities he now enjoys. As a toddler Ryan enjoyed riding on the back of a bike in a carrier. He unfortunately has outgrown the carrier. Movement has a calming effect on Ryan. The Buddy Bike
would be perfect. The funds raised would go towards the bike, shipping and assembly. Thank you!
