Tyler is a complex case study. Tyler has so far defied diagnosis by his doctors, but a number of symptoms are present including low muscle tone. Tyler is also non-verbal. Tyler has tactile defensiveness. Tyler is perhaps one of the more challenging children with whom we’ve worked, as trying to get Tyler onto a bike of any kind was a continual problem. Tyler attended our first adapted bike camp in New York in October 2003, and then again in August 2004. We are pleased that Tyler graduated onto his two-wheeler and without training wheels. His mother, Karen and APE Therapist Helen shed tears of joy. Helen now reports
“I have a lot of information on Tyler and his progress, plus the comments and emotions of his family. They now include in their schedule daily rides as a family. They say he (Tyler) just smiles and doesn’t want to get off the bike.”
