Liana’s Bike

Posted on 29th Oct 2019

Liana is an adventurous and active nine-year-old, who loves being outdoors enjoying nature.

She is loving, beautiful and such a happy child,” said mum, Amanda.

Liana is living with Nonverbal Autism which means Liana is not able to speak. Due to her condition, she has difficult with balancing and coordination which made riding bikes difficult for Liana.

She has attempted to ride bikes before but was always scared as the bikes never felt steady for her. She would not feel confident riding it on her own,” said Amanda.

Fortunately, a Freedom Wheels assessment day was being held at a school in the local area. Amanda knew this was the perfect opportunity for Liana and had to book.

The experience was fantastic! The Occupational Therapist knew how to work with Liana and her Autism. Not only was it a quick assessment, she was thorough,” said Amanda.

The Freedom Wheels assessment was an extraordinary moment for Amanda.

Watching Liana ride a bike was the best experience ever. She could not wipe the smile off her face, and neither could I! Not only has this bike built a lot of confidence in her, but she now feels safe and steady!” said Amanda.

With her new bike and new confidence, Liana now rides with the whole family and loves every bit of it.

Amanda was so thankful for Freedom Wheel’s help. When asked what she would say to families looking for a custom bike, Amanda said, “I recommend Freedom Wheels! The features are so helpful that it controls the steadiness, speed and direction for your child. Liana cannot get enough of this bike and now has another great reason to go outdoors.”

Thank you for Liana’s bike. We love it. This bike was the perfect fit for Liana.”
