Typically developing toddlers simultaneously spend about three hours a day in physical activity, play, and engagement with objects, such as riding toys, while their peers with developmental disabilities are less likely to engage in all of those activities. Physical activity has important physiological benefits for our children, but it also is a vehicle through which our children with the most profound special needs can engage with their peers and interact with their surroundings. Past research has shown that independent mobility is linked to cognitive, social, motor, language and other developmental benefits in young children. Being pushed in a stroller or being carried from one place to another is fundamentally different from having active control over one’s own exploration, which is where the developmental gains are seen. These trikes are one way that our children can improve and increase their independent mobility in a safe and inclusive manner.
