The Best Trick: Scootering as Therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorders

The Best Trick: Scootering as Therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorders

Our unique little kid, Paxton. In case you were wondering, he's one on the right. ;)

The following article was written by my wife, Dena Carlile, who is the mother of my scooter kid, Paxton Swygard. This has been a challenging article to write as we weren't sure if being open/honest about Paxton's diagnosis was a good idea. But we realized that if we can help even one person (parent or child), it's worth it. I'm proud to feature Dena as a guest writer here on ScooterDad and I'm thankful for her contribution to the site and to all the parents out there who can benefit from her thoughts.

I also hope that this article gives a new perspective to some people who may not realize how many kids at the skate park and elsewhere are impacted by Autism spectrum disorders. I know people often misunderstand Paxton and other kids like him. I hope that every reader of this article can learn to be more open to every unique person and his/her challenges in life.
