Very cool! You have done a great thing for your son.
In Colorado where I live we have a very active Special Olympics cycling-racing program. My daughter, who has Down syndrome, has been racing for five years now on a two wheeler. A number of the athletes in the program have autism. They ride everything from cruisers to recumbent trikes, hybrids, mountain bikes, tandems and drop bar road bikes, depending on age, balance, etc. One thing is for sure-the time on the bike has great collateral benefits for general fitness and confidence.
I think this is exactly the right place to post on technologies that extend the joys of cycling to as many folks as want to ride.
