Kristina: You are absolutely correct about how physical activity benefits children (all children, for that matter) on the spectrum.

How did you and Jim teach Charlie how to "respect" traffic and abide by the rules of the road? My 9 year-old son is on the spectrum, and I think he would love to ride a bike (already loves his Razor scooter). Would love to hear how you accomplished this with Charlie. Thanks!

Teaching Charlie about traffic was a long-term effort as you may imagine (and with many a hair-raising moment). Jim has written some things; I'll find and compile them. Bike-riding has been a real blessing for Charlie and us, for sure

Charlie used to have a Razor scooter but he's liked being able to much farther on his bike!
