Teaching riders with disabilities to ride

Oh kind, wonderful, helpful, all-knowing and extraordinarily wise forumers (enough of the smarm, already) - am seeking your help about a video on special bikes for teaching kids/adults with learning disabilities/balance problems.

IIRC, someone posted it on this forum, but can't find it. Need info for friend who works with such people and would like to add such a bike(s) to his existing stock of trikes, handbikes, etc.

Please, please, please, pretty please?

Thanks MichaelW.

The bikes I'm thinking of started the learners off with a wide roller in place of the rear wheel which was gradually narrowed until it could be changed to a very wide wheel and so on until they could ride a more conventional bike.

Over to you, O Omniscient Forumers
