                 ADRIAN’S SCOOTER

Steve and I been debating for several months now whether to buy Adrian a bicycle or a scooter. At first Steve did not want to buy him either. Adrian has issues with walking for periods of time and his motor skills are delayed. Neither of us were sure he would be able to maneuver either.

Today we were shopping at Wal-Mart and I suggested we stop in that section to see what they had.  We found a couple of different Razor models and then Steve came across one he liked. It is a Fuzion Sport Scooter. It boasts a wider deck and 4 wheels, instead of the slim two-wheeled style, with a rear break. The Fuzion Scooter seemed to be a better fit. We bought the last one in stock.

Then Adrian had a mini meltdown because daddy had to take a different aisle than mommy and he thought mommy was lost. We picked out his helmet and finished our shopping.

On the way out we decided to get Adrian’s hair cut. It was so long. He was the first customer in and he did so wonderfully.

Once home he helped his dad put together the scooter and then he went riding for a little while. The scooter leans which ever way you lean and he was nervous about that part. He got it though. Steve had to show him at first and then he did it himself. I was shocked. My husband was so moved he was almost crying. It is a big HUGE leap for our son.

His sensory issues keep him inside often. I was just mentioning that to Steve. Last year that would have never happened. He complains when we are walking to his bus stop five minutes away. His sensory issues take a lot our of him and our home is his safe place. Nothing is ever too loud or too bright or different too often. We hear about it if it makes him concerned. That is a new development too. Him being able to tell us what bothers his senses is wonderful.

I am so proud of his accomplishments. He has to work 10 times as hard to do things “typical”  people take for granted. I can not even tell you how great it is to see him progress.

About The Spectrum Mom

I am mom to two amazing children!! Jade my oldest is ten and Adrian is 7. My life happens to have one beautiful blessing in disguise the chance to be a mom to a child on the Autism Spectrum. Adrian was diagnosed with PDD-NOS on May 28, 2010 shortly after his sixth birthday. Since the start of our lives on the spectrum I have read books, watched numerous programs, found therapists, tried to navigate the public school system and special education. Looked into special diets (Adrian is currently on GFCF and we have seen tremendous improvement) and tried various medicines to help him. In addition to ASD Adrian also is diagnosed with ADHD and a seizure disorder BRE. This blog will mostly be about ASD and my life caring for Adrian.
