Get on your bike

Dylan and Josh both got bikes for their bithdays.

Dylan can’t ride a bike.

Even with stabilisers he doesn’t have the muscle tone in his legs to push the pedals.

He much prefers to catch a lift on Joshs tricknuts.

Overall Dylan has little coordination.

He will often stumble over nothing, trip over thin air and frequently his hands are too shaky to be able to write clearly.

Dylan also is severly affected with anxiety which quickly rises and whips up a frenzy of panic in him, blocking any learning, any attempts of pacification and is a huge barrier to his learning.

So to come downstairs this afternoon to see Grace gently guiding and encouraging Dylan to learn to ride his bike was simply, magical.
