Riding a Bike

Child Learning to Ride a Bike

Difficulties learning to ride a bike can affect a child’s self esteem and social relationships. If your child is struggling to develop this skill despite lots of time and effort trying to teach them, it may be that they would benefit from seeing an Occupational Therapist.

Occupational Therapists are able to analyse activities and work out where the difficulties lie. They can then begin to teach a child to ride a bike using a variety of strategies based on overcoming the child’s particular area of difficulty.
