31 for 21: Riding a bike!

Tommy's greatest challenge is gross motor. Because he lost so much strength at the beginning of this year, I decided not to continue working on riding a bike to avoid frustration. Even although, he was able to kept his feet on the pedals, he wasn't very interest as before because it was harder for him.

I decided to give it a try again this evening. He loved it! He pedaled three times and got propulsion because of the sidewalk has an inclination, so he could pedal about 8 feet. I wasn't expecting this and I am glad it happened during the Down syndrome awareness month.
