I have an 8 yr old son who still cannot ride a bike as he cant seem to balance no matter how much i try running along holding the saddle. Also he has now decided he does not even want to learn to ride it (because hes a bit defeatist). Hes also an over cautious kid and scared of falling off. Does anyone else have a child with aspergers who cannot ride or have no interest in doing so due to lack of balance/coordination, and any ideas on getting him past this? Ive tried telling him how much fun he will have on his bike once he can ride it but his answer to that is ' i can have fun on my feet'.
