I know there are a spectrum of abilities for people with CP. here are a couple of ideas depending on where your niece is.
here is an example of a bike that is purpose designed. I rehabbed it for a bike charity I helpout with
The bike it self is a low geared direct drive (ie. it's a fixie), it has a handle that let's a caregiver push and steer also.
another thought might be to look into an tricyle bike. (this is my dad on one) and look at using as smaller front chaing ring and/or alternate rear gears.
Pics of the bike you plan to modify would be helpful
sounds like a great project
