Bike Riding Program
Occupational therapists, familiar with the social and motor challenges relevant to many children with special needs, will run the program to be able to adjust to the individual needs of each child. The program is run in a group of children depending on the size of the space available. All parents are encouraged to observe and watch the group to be able to practice the skills at home which helps increase the speed in which a child learns. Programs have been run indoors and outdoors depending on the season.
Who Would Benefit?
