The Vault Pro Scooters - The Kick Scooter: The Ride of The 21st Century

The Vault Pro Scooters - The Kick Scooter: The Ride of The 21st Century

Thanks to The Vault Pro Scooters for creating this great info graphic!

Our friends and advertising partners over at The Vault Pro Scooters recently put together an infographic about the history of the kick scooter over at their site and they asked us to share it here as well. I was quite surprised at how much I learned from inventor's sister's leg condition that led to the invention of the kick scooter to new scootering video game that is currently in development. They did a really great job with this, so I hope that you'll get something out of it too. So take a look and then head over to The Vault to check out their inventory.

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.
