We have two trikes that allow us to push him - but they are not intended for special needs children so I need to figure out a way to adapt them. I am looking into pedal adaptive that would allow us to Velcro his feet to - so when we push him - his legs would actually spin - but at this website http://www.flaghouse.com/Adapted-Tricycle-Accessory-Foot-Pedal-Attachments-item-5875 they want $78 - are you NUTS!! Why is it that everything that is needed for our children costs so much money. I am seeking out my relatives to see if anyone can be creative - and make them for us cheaper -
Another website that looked promising is http://www.amtrykestore.org/ They might even donate a bike to your special needs child if a therapist/doctor refers you and there is a financial need. They offer different accessories that might be helpful to adapt one of his bikes to fit his needs.
I also went to amazon.com and found these bikes as a possibility:

I allows find it tough to find gifts for our special little guy - but I think this would make a wonderful third birthday gift - so when we go on walks he won't have to be in a stroller or his wheelchair. Can anyone else recommend any other suggestions?
